part of me died in the 90s

compassion died over fifteen years ago
in the nineties
in a bus crash
along with good taste
and rock music
when they died –
when the bus went over the cliff
when we were given toys for life
and convenience became a right
when we became children for life
and adolescence took over
and now we live in a world
that’s just like high school
that’s just like we always wanted

someone shoot me now
