Celled Souls

yeah!, I know your type
contrarian to the bone
one or two compatriots
scheming, conspiring
contriving ways to make
a fool of the world
its ways
and most every one else in it
soon you'll greed for a following
start generating bigger and bigger noise
garnering attention
gathering only catcalls
and guffaws

"why won't anyone listen!?"

beacause you are wrong
dead wrong
simple as that
you will never get your impotent point across
to the contented well adjusted
(rich or poor, here or there)

you are a pointless rampage
so insufferably self rightous
less than a pestering mosquito
to the rest of us

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


i've got one just like it that's more self reflexive and scathing. we're all attention whores. no way to avoid that. is there a specific piece or person that inspired this?
