THEM

them

they work out at the gym

they fly around in planes

they ask for discount

they read sophisticated books

they try out fancy diets

they always quit smoking

they believe in the establishment

they marvel at uninspired modern art

they eat chocolate bars

 

them

they are creatively gifted

they talk about money

they care about refugees

they're deeply compassionate

they hose down their cars

they walk their dogs

they vote very, very left

they have validated opinions on everything

 

and when they close their eyes

they sleep so marvellously well

they dream of their good friends

and how those friends admire…

 

them

they cook vegan curries

they run on the sidewalk

they save on taxes

they drink still water

they drink expensive wine

they are so in charge

they laugh a bit too loud

they get tight-lipped around strangers

they like health resort holidays (detox treatment)

 

and when they fold their hands

they know for sure they’ve got it right

they sound off their beliefs

and how their lord is fond of…

 

them

they build substantial houses

they build fences and walls

they track stock exchange quotations

they wear fancy glasses

they raise children

they pile up cash

they are majorly important

they call each other darling and honey and

they don’t give a shit

and when they close their eyes

they sleep so marvellously well

they dream of their good friends

and how those friends admire them

and when they fold their hands

they know for sure they’ve got it right

they sound off their beliefs

and how their lord is fond of them
