Built to Last

Built to Last

There is no money in cures
But treatments
Those brings in big cash

There is no profit to be made
When one
Or two
will last forever

Everything must shut down
Everything must turn off in
1-5 years

You have to buy this years
This seasons
This expansion
This update

Vaccines are funded and found by the hundreds
Cures are destroyed because they are bain of big business

You ever wonder why
In the 80's
Your uncle
Or whomever had
Cars from the 40's and 50's
in perfect working order

Yet today
In 2012

You'd be lucky to find any car from the 80's or 90's that even starts
Your uncle
Or whomever
Will tell you that you'd be a fool to buy one

I wonder
If there will be another day where something
Will say

Built to last.

I remember you

Like a fine wine


Your soul was bold

Your style was flavorful

Even now

The memory of you

Lingers joyfully

on the pallet

Sweat and bubbly In your youth

Complex with a deep soulful aroma

As you aged


I remember you

Like a fine wine


Whom or what

Pored this acid into you

After everything you have been through

This is what you have become


you stand before me

Insolent and Bitter

Refusing help and wallowing in sorrow

Reeking from the stench of planned

(or maybe accomplished )



I remember you

Like a fine wine


Whom or what has done this to you

Why have you let this happen

Whom or what has turned you

from a fine wine




What have you become.
