It's Edgy, It's Hip (It's Lame)

It's Edgy, It's Hip (It's Lame)

A Poem by J. R.
"

This one reflects my opinion of the use of the word "edgy" in marketing

"
Dress a doll in black and red
  It's edgy, it's hip
Make a show about a pothead
  It's edgy, it's hip
Trivialize violence and sex
  It's edgy,it's hip
Cram movies full of special effects
  It's edgy, it's hip

Stay at home and read a book
  That's lame
Go out camping by the brook
  That's lame
Teach our kids to think critically
  That's lame
Get people informed politically
  That's lame

Buy a pair of expensive shades
  It's edgy, it's hip
Decorate your room with grenades
  It's edgy, it's hip
Use a lot of gangsta slang
  It's edgy, it's hip
Get a tattoo of the Yin&Yang
  It's edgy,it's hip

Let's make a film with depth and substance
  That's lame
Encourage kids to be good students
  That's lame
Criticize outdated gender roles
  That's lame
Make ghettos something other than hellholes
  That's lame

I love the commentary here. Not sure about the rhyme of substance and students though. This poem is lame (high praise in contect of the poem itself)

It's incredibly ironic that jeans are advertised as an individualistic, rebelious piece of clothings while I'm the only person I know who doesn't wear them.
