Seems all we ever want is fame
Means more to us than our good name
Why do we tend to reward the bad?
And stamp out what honesty we had?

Don't mistake mundane for mendacity
We worship all plasticity
While showering praise on atrocity
Glorifying all ferocity

This just in-An ordinary
Life should never be a waste
Spicy in variety,
So give to me just one more taste
This just in-An ordinary
Life should never be a shame
If you're looking for something true and real
Who is to blame?

Seems all we ever crave is fake
Where is the good, for goodness sake?
We take and take, for good or ill
And the next generation foots the bill.

Kindness spurned, cheered hypocrisy
Nothing earned, lost democracy
All have turned, no simplicity
Unlearned domesticity

This just in-An ordinary
Life should never be a waste
Here I am for all to see
I won't let them carve up my face
This just in-An ordinary life
Is extraordinary indeed
And clarity, sincerity
Cannot mislead.

If all we ever want is joy
Instead of getting the latest toy
Will we succeed instead of fail?
Will justice finally prevail?

Shut out the noise and seek what's true
Fight the good fight til you break through
Find another choice, another clue
Take another bite and chew

This just in-An ordinary
Life should never be a waste
Spicy in variety
So give to me just one more taste
This just in-there is no such
Thing as life ordinary
So be wary
Carrying, caring
Forever sharing.
Getting tired of the crap I see on the net and on TV. Does anyone know what's real anymore?

Like your poem ... especially last seven lines of last stanza. Yes, I am often sick of the rubbish around and anything is up for grabs to watch or be on reality TV. However, a life that is lead apart from hypocrisy is certainly no ordinary life...the real individuals are those who don't have to prove it.
