Bad For You

Energy drinks are “bad for you”
Even if they’re delicious

But what can be really bad is
Fake news and alternative facts

And people upset over who they voted for
Safe spaces without triggers

It’s hard to keep track of these days
All the stuff that’s bad for you

1984 is popular again
The book and nostalgia

The Bachelor is brainless
Big Bang Theory isn’t very funny

Fucking Buzzfeed, man

The_Donald and

Echo chambers

Russia and China the

ISIS and Syria
Definitely unhealthy

The Pirate Bay sails again
4chan and Wikileaks are omnipresent

Just like the NSA and CIA

Snowden and Assange are
On the run because they did

What they thought was right

Putin and Trump have fun
In political cartoons

Old celebrities are dying
And everyone’s surprised

Students are in debt
Jobs are tougher to find

Among all the stuff
That’s bad for you

Member berries
Rick and Morty Season 3 not out yet

Blasphemy is bad for you
And so is a government bipartisan


Disagreeing is bad for you
Coca Cola is bad for you

Consumerism is bad for you
“It’ll kill you”

Spending money is bad
If you’re not saving it

College is screwed up
“Education’s a joke”

It’s all bad for you
Living: bad for you

Breathing can be bad
Under the right circumstances

The ocean is bad for you
Cars are dangerous

The outsider who offered
To give you a ride is bad for you

Everything is bad for you
No good without bad

Once you realize that
Every moment is a fluke

You can stop and properly smell the roses
With their thorns that are bad for you

Or enjoy the shining summer sun
That can give you cancer

Die to an allergy to your favorite food
Or be murdered by your lover

Risk or reward, pleasure or pain…
It’s all bad for you in some impossible way
