elevated, tom has waited
as lou read the blues.

heroes live to be forgiven
for their drug misuse,

but the men behind the pen
aren't really concerned.

documentaries counting every
cigarette that's burned.

rudimentary is this century
and its idolising.

true change comes with freedom's hum,
and the key is realising

that our very culture is the vulture
we are fighting.

do not worship poets,
for they don't know what they are writing.
