Cartoon People In A Reality World


Heads too big for their bodies,

eyes like saucers wide.

Trying to live in a reality world

and act so civilized.

False-faced, phony people,

speaking in bubbles above their heads.

Longing to fit into a society

where so much goes unsaid.

Trying to stand out in the crowd,

with colors bold and bright.

When all that matters in this life,

is what's written in black and white.

They've exsisted so long inside their boxes,

in perfectly scripted scenes.

That they don't even comprehend

what reality really means.
