The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Slough It Off!

Slough It Off!

Residual Millennial Anxiety
Obsolete religious piety
Your membership to high society

Unfulfilled lover's passion
Devotion towards fashion
Shopping on impulse, lacking ration

Shameless Selfie Copyist
Fundamentalist versus Atheist
Beef between poorest and wealthiest

Automated Political Affiliation
Imagined perfect nation
Tacit trust in technologic innovation

All this and much more must you slough off
As a serpent sheds it skin.
Do not bow down to greed and sloth —
Only once unleavened can our true work begin.

Travel light like any photon or neutrino;
Break chemical bonds without dis-ease.
Know when to walk away from a table at life's casino.
Learn to listen in silence and find inner peace.

Quietly cut guff
That's quite enough
Just simply, slough it off!
