Uh oh. Another one started.

Apparently, my creative side is pissed!
So far, in response to an excellent tweet, this just tumbled out...

‪Every time Iím on the brink ‬
‪You pull me back so I donít sink‬
‪The lies, so dead, begin to stink‬
‪Iíd like to buy the truth a drink. ‬


Iím hoping this one will be more subtle. Iíll post back if it comes out fairly well.

3. How's this? More subtle at least than the first one.

Time is wasted on the youth
They canít tell white lies from the truth
When the story breaks this time for real
Find a way to just not feel

For all of your indignant ways
You question your beliefs these days
Forgive me if I donít reply
Twitter lives while people die

‪Every time Iím on the brink ‬
‪You pull me back so I donít sink‬
‪The lies, so dead, begin to stink‬
‪Iíd like to buy the truth a drink. ‬

Why canít you look me in the eyes
You know I know itís all been lies
Forgive me if I look astray
For you, this is the only way

I try hard to erase your voice
What is freedom, what is choice
Your crooked tongue has gotten old
Unlike you, I wonít be sold.

‪Every time Iím on the brink ‬
‪You pull me back so I donít sink‬
‪The lies, so dead, begin to stink‬
‪Iíd like to buy the truth a drink. ‬

4. I've been writing lyrics.

Donít know if this one would be acceptable. As straight poetry, I wouldnít repeat the ďbuy the truthĒ quatrain. It would just be last.
