Pop Culture (standard:poetry, 201 words)
Author: David SynnAdded: May 03 2015Views/Reads: 510/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
I have been meaning to write something about Pop Culture for some time now. Through observation and trying to keep up, while at the same time trying to revolt against it, these are the words I found.
 



Pop Culture 

As I sit, I ponder the vast world of pop culture. To myself, I wonder
how to to keep up with every form and sub genre. 

It's all about how much. How much you know and how far you'll go to keep
up with the times on a playing field that continually grows. 

When is too old to use slang meant for a 16 year old? Knowing your 15
won't happen? Fooled by Warhol, an ape could have made a better 
prediction. 

Consumerism paves the way to shopping sprees in streets of gold. The
American Dream. Fabricated from wars and conspiracy. Fashion and run 
ways. 

The 1990's. 

What's on the TV? Commercials meant to spark your interest and and shows
filled with a false sense of reality. People can't seem to see through 
it. 

We are blinded by machines and and the want to fit into society. As one
trend dies, it is replaced by another from a darker past and world. 
Over and over again the trend grows. 

Retro. 

We are a statistically motivated savage race. Among the worms we will
rest. While we're alive, we take it in stride because we can't take it 
once we die.
