Pretend

Pretend

Pretend it’s my time to fake

Let’s pseudo equate 
Take somthing good 
“Tell-’em it’s great”

Don’t lie.. 
Exaggerate 
Bitter sweet taste 

Create that  
Stupid look on a face 
Challenge knowledge
Until it’s up in flames 

Add to that fire 
Fuel for inspire 
Couple feet higher 

“Until it’s a blaze”

Community “code..”
Gossip in blossom...

Smooth ride on a dirt road

Cooking up lunch on a burnt out stove

Selling value in a high intrest loan

Tell you what to be
Go on about your hay day
Don’t think of me
Remember what I say  

 lost in a job 
 the boss is the cause 
Of misery and pain

Started out as work 
“now it’s all play”

Thank you so much Lisa . I really took a lot of time rearranging the stanzas and changing words to get what I was aiming for .. I hope it inspired and made the heat race a little to create a ambiance

I think you've captured such an important reality of today's society in such an unique (like Mitsali said) and alluring way! Very intelligently written, the abstractness is brilliantly woven with the message. Loved it! 👏🏽👏🏽
