Latex Society

Latex Society

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

I think it speaks for itself.

"

More and more it seems I am suffocating

from societies substance not letting me speak,

so I gasp for air in attempts to get the words out

but unfortunately they aren’t politically correct.

 

Now I know we celebrate Independence Day

so I scratch my head while recalling why

when all the colorful words I try to express

are scratched out in place of charcoal gray.

 

If words I think don’t please everybody

then I should treat my thoughts like nothing,

well I guess my mind should remain empty

since the world is made up of different kinds.

 

As the heat from the so called powers that be

grows hotter and hotter over the American way

it seems to get more impossible to breathe

under the cover of this latex society.

I can hear Archie Bunker yelling, "Edithe, stifle yourself!" It's been happening for awhile and progressing. People now want the benefits of friends and lovers with no emotional connections. We will pick a president based on their color or gender but not what they will do for our nation.
"As the heat from the so called powers that be

Everything has become so plastic. If you don't fit the mold you are tossed aside like last week's garbage.
You bring up some great points here and I enjoyed your excellent piece of writing here!

I won't stop either.
Interesting, and so well said.
A condom, is not only for that mister down under, also for the dumb heads, as politics, and empty-mind-ers as I call them, bank robbers, hiders, and liars.
Amazingly said my friend. Your point is clear.

Your words please me always, As I am a weird little birdie, and lost my nest, but, I always shall find the way :D and that "GRAY" has a huge meaning for those as you would will understand, this write goes much deeper than a some even can listen to their inner core.

Amazingly done Dale, your horse should have a true master. One who loves sugar, instead of Latex ;)

This was a perfect way to express what I feel daily. Society's upbringing and the matter that they are forbidding us to speak, afraid of the results. I can relate to this. Personal views are good to point out! Excellent piece.

This does speak for itself. There is so much personal feelings and emotion that it really touches my soul as I read it. Loved it! I like the style you write in as well. Great work.

Nice write. Agree with you completely. Clever but well fitting way to describe the situation... suffocating under a latex society. A substance that takes the breath to speak and live, can see through it, but only shows distortions. Enjoyed this much.

Well written.. and such needed awakening to the hearts of the many in society that may well feel the same way.. the term latex society is such a truthful metaphor.. as if anyone dares speak too loudly or advocates .. heaven forbid! To venture and speak against those with power above or around us.. can be such a damning thing.. when it shouldn't be. Scares me to think of what this social behaviour will do to labour laws.. freedom of speech.. the rights of each and every individual protected by laws that govern both US and Canada as we are close neighbouring business friends. It's like every individual and entity is going for the route of self-protectionism.. which will lead to socialism and communism type behaviours.. very scary! I applaud you for taking on such a subject with some undertones of humour too! Makes one wonder where we will be sitting in 10 years from now should nothing be done about this! Thank you so much for sharing! =)

I like how your work doesn't just hit one issue, but multiple, all in a relatable way.

We are very much suffocating, slamed down by an "iron fist". Society's become sterile, lacking in diverse thought. I feel like more and more, people are giving into the expectations and the strategic impulses. It's sad, depressing, but very, very, true.

I like your insightfulness in this piece, very nice.

I just had to read this becuz of the picture! What a scream.
Great sentiments......yes, sometimes I fear for our freedom of speech. I feel that there is a lot of confusion in this area, especially in the universities where you can't graduate or teach if you believe a certain way or hold certain opinions.
Nicely done.

wonderful metaphor; latex society. your avatar is sooooo funny. lolit is true though; our society does shy away from anyone speaking their mind. i know i am very outspoken person, and sometimes i feel people around me would rather me be quiet, go with that they do, and that's good enough. not good enough!!! i like this poem. good job.
