I would hope to make the people I actually know
more important than politicians
in my life.
I would rather go to the mat
for Joe or Sam down the street
than a guy being paid to be popular on TV.
If I know the names of your children,
and where they go to school,
shouldn’t I be more interested in them
than in who this week’s magazines have spun to be cool?
So much is artificial,
ultra-refined and designed
but without nutritional value
for the body or the mind.
I just think we should focus
on what’s real instead of buying
the mass market media line.
