Stupid Star System

Stupid Star System

Well looky here, see clear young viewers
Haven't you had enough of prequels, sequels, and remakes?
Don't get your hopes up. Every movie makes its own mistakes...

Roughly the same plot but sporting fresh faces;
script updated to pop and zap
(alongside chic product placements).

Another box office record smashed by a summer blockbuster!
Although who actually gives a crap?
If hype had a flavor—it'd be mustard.

Catching on merely by being overwhelming
Right now in a galaxy real close by
there's a deficiency in reasoning.

Admit it: it's just the mythology of technology
that you're addicted to. Which is why
we criticize, yet always attend anew.

Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi.
Sub-genres spin off from the mother ship
and impress images onto Deep Social Mind's eye!

This single man stands for every troubadour who lands sitting on his or her own hands ...

Throughout the long hard lonely years
There's been a drought of healthy tears
Desensitization pervades as youthful vigor fades
However, cynicism and sarcasm abound in spades

Cyclical oral histories further obfuscate mysteries
Yet by far the worst of these escapes abstract bestiaries:
Why does entropy tend to defeat the world's wordy elite?
Signal attenuation atrophies and shorts our circuit's built-in cheat

Gobble up that mouthful with just one breath
Gradation hardly matters unless you score an F
Shrink the package down for global distribution
Since there be no guarantee, expect 0 restitution

This solo hero hands promised lands to those for which he stands may they tame their soul's demands!

- Purport -

Oh; you didn't get it eh¿
'twas intended to be this way
Rather sorry to cause dismay
But the title is in state of play¡
