"It's too short," sighed the lip-curled girl.
The 90s are back in style like an indifferent townie
drinking coffee with F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
Simmered in Apple spice
So clean and user friendly!

We're getting so much done here
Between status updates
Beneath the rotting weight of worry
Above the line of poverty
Beside our pretty peers

Unblinking into the steady light
With polka dotted foci
We strive
And waste a lot of time

It's a lie to say it's all we know
But how could we go back
Newspapers, dictionaries
Body piercings, Game Boys
They're just so over now

The poster kids of pragmatizz
So quick to cast aside
Frivolity for economy
We've whittled away the things we call worthless
And could never survive in the wild

Unflinching, no doubt
No philosophy required
We've arrived here for the better
And we deserve it all
