straight lines
oh you straight lines
perfect grid structure
no bending
no curving
always straight you straight lines
perfectly created to guide
everything in its place
nothing lost
nothing out of place
no thing ever out of place
not even outer space
all serving function
even negatives have their space
creating room for the positive
always in one direction
unable to turn
stuck in the straight lines
no bending
no curving
perfectly rigid grid
no friend to wind
or variables
or anything that changes
afraid to be anything else
unable to fathom the world
ignoring reality
stuck in fantastical fanatic fantasies
what a fantastic dream
oh straight lines
such beautiful fantastic straight lines
your haunting gridlocked nightmarish restrictions
painting the perfect picture every time
hiding unseen broken lines
keeping the background hidden from the audience
no one wants to actually know the trick
magic is all we see
suspend disbelief
look not behind the veil
curtain calls abandoned
this must be reality
what we perceive
such perfect straight lines
all matters state wise
form and function play nice
only jesus came twice
you must be the reason
we no longer seem calm
forced to take control
of every breakdown
no inefficiencies in the system
who will clean up the mess
made by you
oh straight lines
you glorious marvelous
straight lines not an end in sight
infinitely hypnotizing my eyes
lulled by your lullaby
to fall asleep fast
till I wake up in hell
rough patches never before seen
turning over and over
changing too fast for me
give me back my straight lines
I miss my ever present straight lines
easier to control than surprises
ignorance is bliss
to the party
with the most to lose
