Sharper Image

I’m short-changing
my interests
charging interest
on my own good times

dying life
on borrowed dimes

saving up but
my soul’s gone bankrupt
liberty’s on toxic loan
barter me a smarter “free”

antipathy
of we can do better
a slogan to get behind

I’ve got a room
with a view
but it’s a
yellowed photograph

tell me this picture’s
crooked
because I’m
not seeing straight

still…I’m smart enough to know

I’m not about to have
a PR department
neuter my image

I’m not about to
murder one idiot
when I’m after the village.

Saving up, but soul’s gone bankrupt.
