Push and Pull

By Scott Bailey © 2017

All the sighs
Every loving glance
And long slow dance
Hold them tight
As we approach the night

Then fill with lies
Squeeze out the dreams
With mindless streams
Of celebs and fear
Until no one is here

And cherish the wise
Thoughts that flow
Before they go
Into the night
So hold them tight

Into a box
And cattle stocks
To milk and drain
To strike the brain

Live your dreams
For our revenue streams
Complete the bucket list
No source to be missed
Hold on to the light
For our gold so bright
