Some things never change,
With enough money, we can all
Choose which devil we wish
To partner. It’s simple, like the
Trampoline replacing the swing set.
Time gets written in weakness,
Songs played in the burning years.
Days may falter, delinquent
Pits of another generation
Carry with it a smuggler
Whom changes the rules, replaces
One way to score with another,
Dragging dripping legends to smother.
