The message you’re sending
A never-ending
Bending
Of the truth
To fake youth
It shows proof
Your white gold tooth
Chattering with your others
Clambering for words to smother
No stammering or stutter
So as not to seem a fool
So as not to look a tool
Your hodge-podge list of rules
For governing the schools
Of thoughts that don’t fit
What you’ve taught and what you spit
Throwing knots into the pit
To give your dark a better grip
Making sure it doesn’t slip
To pull it up and out your lips
To send another message
