The Underground Garden: Bandwagon Jumpers (original coattail hoppers…)

I love bandwagon jumpers
Fad followers
Trendy people and their mimicked hollers of
I’m cool!!
Can’t you see?
I’m rocking this month’s color like I’ve seen on t.v.!!
I gotta stay on what’s hot!

Please don’t forget me!
Please!!
I want to follow that lead!

I like people who can’t decide
With whom they want to align

Who behave in ways that make others wonder why
I should believe they are truly an ally

Who try to be sly
When they say “Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii”

I like these folks cuz they make me laugh
With the way they try to make others mad

The only thing that gets upset is a stomach
They make those turn

I guess I like them cuz they help people learn

How to use Trust and Caution.

How to sense hypocrisy and ego driven actions
It’s pretty sad when
You’re approached by a mask cuz
Trends and fads are all they have

Where’s their Honor?

That question you should ask

I gotta love those that try
Otherwise
I’d get caught up in their twisted minds
So I float,
Float on

And pass them by

Cuz I want no part of their copycat designs

I want no theft of my identity
No bit part in their dramadies

It’s funny how people think that just like they do
Others aren’t watching them too.

Some choose to let a snake its skin naturally shed
Then pull out a machete and cut off its head.

Does that sound drastic?
Fantastic?

Try watching bandwagon jumpers unapologetically jump into bed with the newest, hottest fad they want to head.

Yes.

I love the ones that like to be Hot
On top
And use false sincerity cuz they know they alone won’t do the job

I love to watch and learn how ego works
How easily what you just loved so dearly you can leave in the dirt
When in the distance
Is a witnessed
Next
Big
Thing

Jump on the bandwagon and follow the fad
Not understanding love is a reality you can naturally have
The projection of depth is not a task
Unless it’s all an act.

It’s not about
Where you’re seen
Who you know
Where you been.

It’s about the face in the mirror
You live with those demons

Under cracking circumstances they won’t stay hidden
So why breathe into them existence?

Search and find a love that speaks to you
That hears you too
For which you will stay true
It will Thank You

You will thank You.

This is dedicated to my beloved ones
The victims of fire tongues
Victims of betrayal aimed knives
Of approaching innocence that turned out to be a disguise
Which only assists in the enhancement of the already wise
Real warriors never die and love multiplies.

Bandwagon jumpers always fall to the side
They can’t handle the ride and it’s no surprise
To Beings of Truth
Who know deep inside:

If you’re evil in veils and you’re versus right
Eventually from the darkness rises truth towards the Light
Seek to find yourself without it being a bite.

Always be Yourself.

The Soul that Breathes in your Mind.
