Guild of Grime

People like us do things like this
I’ve got a product that you don’t wanna miss
For a small price you can buy happiness
‘Til it bleeds to the ocean with your garbage and piss

Worry not, friend, there’s so much in store
Buy another one, buy another more
When you get bored, you can buy a pack of four
When you’ve lost all shame, you can buy a slave whore

When you’re all out of money, you can pay with your time
Sell your soul to me, and commit a simple crime
Commit ten more, regard yourself as slime
Become just like me, join the Guild of Grime

Love was in your heart, dollar on your mind
With nowhere to start, words made you blind
You went outside, it’s the dollar that you’d find
If you stayed inside, there was something far more kind

But it’s not too late, just sit down and see
No amount of dollars can set you free
I make no qualms, cash can bring ecstasy
But mind your purchased chains, your own slavery

Do you normally dislike poetry? Me too! It turns out, I like writing it, but I cringe at the thought of the stereotypical puffy culture surrounding it. If I want to smell my own farts all day, I stuff my belly with garlic and onions, thank you very much.

Anyway, if you want more poetry without all the stuffy pseudo-intellectual silliness attached, subscribe to my newsletter below. Unsubscribe at anytime. I respect your time by respecting mine. I don’t send frivolous bullshit.

AGHKGH! [email protected]&# OFF POPUP!

Sorry, sorry! I just thought since you've been on this site for longer than average, you might hear me out?

Why do you do this to me, Ian...

Okay, okay, I'll be quick! I have a newsletter to keep you up-to-date on my content and projects. If my stuff tickles your pickle, help us both out by subscribing!

Also, I don't do anything shady or aggressive with your email address. I'll only send you the good stuff and won't share your email with any person/provider that isn't working for me to serve you better.

'Serve me better.' What deliciously vague jargon. Is this where you pretend to be me and you make me respond with a contrived form of consent because you're bold enough to assume this cute little chat interface gimmick is enough to actually get me to sign up?

Ummm... uhhh... ahh... Sign up and get exclusive discounts and early access!!!! Come ooooon! Induced scarcity is fun!


...alright, well, I'll leave it up to you.
