Portfolio in progress

If you are not worried,
You are not listening;
Magazines have poisoned teens
With serpent words,
Sharp and silken,
Soft as the devil’s tongue.
Advertisements are chisels,
Etching lies in young girl’s minds
As they watch hollow frames
Cavort under the burning glare
Of a thousand hungry eyes.
The harsh music rings through all our ears;
And if you are not worried,
You have not been listening.
