Waste of Time

Pure high school drama at its worst.
Immature school girls whine, argue, and bitch.
“I don’t care” vibes dwell in my headaches.

Taylor Swift, Adele, Ellie Goulding pop era.
Clique time, social status, most racist in history.
Stop trying to make YOLO fetch -
it’s never going to happen.

At school we learn everything
needed to be successful at breathing.
Teachers are so insightful, almost genius.
Feeling that I belong, never listen to the past.
At least they give us a clean environment.

Indie style clothes only,
Hollywood breathes cigarettes,
fashion trends of the old ages.

The apocalypse is coming soon,
I can feel in the heat of debate,
we never realize the best times,
the level of the absurd world.

I like this, Samantha. People across the generations would do well to remember YOLO.
