Black Holes An Revolutions
An orange nimbus rises, defyin aa rational thocht
declares he kens athin, makkin speeches
aboot neckin fish tunk cleaner an injectin bleach,
deformin peer humans intae a mass o stupidity,
bilin athin he dis wrang doon tae fake news, fan
he’s fuck-all bit a supermassive orange bam.
Errs nae point
in tryin tae makk sense o summin
it disna mak sense avva, so dinna waste yer time spawnin
a black hole o yer ain makkin
leavin aa the tabs open, so there’s nae escapin fae yer ain thinkin,
tryin tae determine meanin
fae the debris that spoots oot the mooth
o the supermassive orange bam.
He’s a puff heided eejit wae nae remorse,
suckin in athin, blawin oot nithin,
atein up yer sanity, nae point in arguin,
steer clear o his event horizon,
takk athin he blurts wae a pinch o salt,
jist bein sarcastic, wisna his fault
ca canny yer rage an try tae bide calm –
it’s a recht sare fecht wae
the supermassive orange bam.
