Cool Kids on the Block

29 August 2016

Music videos are my generation’s moon landing

Glassy eyed in front of TV screens

Munching on cinnamon crunch

Cereal and turning the volume up on

Cruddy speakers

TV rots your brain and sugars rots your teeth and

Don’t sit so close you’ll get square eyes

What’s the 4-1-1?

Rhinestones spell ‘sexy’ on my butt

Earrings double as basketball hoops

Major bling!

Don’t sit so close you’ll get square eyes

Checkout chicks steal side eyes at the store TV

Where it’s all smooth sailing down

Queens of the screen sing from stolen cars

Kissing kings of rap with diamond rings and

Bound by gold chains

Cha-Ching!

Don’t sit so close you’ll get square eyes

Daydreaming during class and

Trapped in our beds at night

Hatching plans of pop stardom

Amongst the stars on the boulevard

That’s one small step for man

Don’t sit so close you’ll get square eyes

“Ya mother wants to watch the morning news”

But I want my MTV
