Offspring

You are my 

Target Audience.

 

Mellow swell,

small fruit

invading.

Sent here

to replace us

with our 

land mined borders,

red velvet tape.

 

Sink or Swim

mentality, sung

from spare planes.

The bootstrap bunch

in high heels.

The measles

and mental health

moguls

with military grade

rhetoric.

 

There is 

No Such Thing 

as Surrender.

You are the 

lonely hope.
