The Wrong of Pop

Dedicated to Taylor Swift’s latest effort:

Peace Is A Choice Gallery - The Old Guitarist

The Wrong of Pop
by Michael Romani

A penchant for speaking truth
Ove humble country strums
Might speak of passion and youth
But offer no excuse for Jazzercize drums

Idiosyncratic bits of garish tackiness
Brings about the yikes of that is this
Sonic selfies as irreconcilable bits of grief
Just leaves me feeling empty in disbelief

Curdled smugness win the public's eye
Weave perceptions that make me question why
All the tricks and frazzle clank in confrontation
Spilling out the fun of indignation

At the thought of a helium prep rally
There's very little room for dignity
When the end game is catchiness as an end itself
Perhaps it's better left on the shelf
