Damned, Dyslexic Man

These people don’t read… damn
Comprehending less than
A dyslexic man

Too many paragraphs, lines
Words, letters… too obtuse
What a sorry excuse

These people don’t read… damn
Sound bites and twitter tweets
Speak to common fans

Rather look at pictures,
Airbrushed to a tee
Then force-fed fixtures

These people don’t read… damn
So this will be shorter
Than their attention spans

These people don’t read
Too feeble to perceive
These people don’t read… DAMN

    • Greetings Tammy,

      I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      With regards to the ‘force-fed fixtures’ line, I was alluding to the manufactured imagery that has become common place.

      ‘Force-fed’ is pretty much self explanatory, while ‘fixtures’ refers to the gimmick/falseness of it all. In other words, the visuals are contrived.
