Nouveau Riche

By Teneisha Mytil

 

Golden rings and flash banging dresses

We are the next generation

The princes and princesses

 

Draped in green paper like fine silk

Our eyes are us

The healthy amongst the ill

 

And we sin our way through time

Doing the cokes, opes, and dopes

Make the world go round just fine

 

Filled up with grapes and barley

To us

Life is just an endless party

 

No worries, no frets

We got everything we need

And yet

 

We can’t help but feel

A little empty

Like none of this is real

 

Golden rings and flash banging dresses

We are the next generation

The princes and princesses

 

And repeat

And repeat
