Artwork for CHILDHOOD by Ernesto Artillo
One day, they'll paint our faces
And they'll stretch our skin
Until we finally give in
For they are nasty, brutish and tall
And they will kill everything
They'll gobble us all
Resolve to hide when they speak
All of their teachings drown in our moments of peace
What you knew we, too, will forget
But may we never grow up enough to regret
See that you don't let your digital mistakes haunt you
Most men lead lives
Of little deaths and quiet desperation
And most men lead lives
Of little deaths and suffering
One day, we must get older
And beg to be loved
Until we keel over
But what is this heart if not a spring?
And what are these tendons, if they are not strings?
Adult, am I not the future?
Are we not the present, the soon-to-be past?
Oh you'll die cold, if you can't perceive
That I am sooner a swarm of bees
Than a sole, static 'me'
