Plastic Personalities

I see far too many trends

Rooted in today’s society

Like the need to always take offence

At every opportunity


Or how all debates descend

Into chaos and hostility

And remaining level-headed

Is a long forgotten ability


Or the way people need approval

To measure their own validity

And live their lives in costume

To hide the vulnerability


But the one I hate the most

Is the two-faced mentality

Never being your actual self

Always hiding the reality


Creating a persona

They think will earn them popularity

And lashing out at those

Who see their emotional fragility


People need to be themselves

Forget the quest for social nobility

Stop with the pantomime smiles

Fuck the bullshit displays of amity


There’s no need to manufacture

A plastic personality

Because nobody’s worth the wearing

Of an engineered identity
