That’s Modernity

ModernityRAYMOND SIGIMET

Some have boxers, some have socks,
Some have seeds to feed the flocks,
Some work hard to buy one box,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some use cards and some pay cash,
Some child born and some child hash,
Some pick up a nasty rash,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some fly high and some go low,
Some are real and some for show,
Some go along with the flow,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some pay tax and some just take,
Some enjoy a tax free break,
Some we make and some sell fake,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some drink herbs and some buy drugs,
Some are babes and some are thugs,
Some boys bounce and some girls shrug,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some boys play and some boys roam,
Some parents are stay at home,
Some have land and some no home,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some work hard during Sabbath,
Some work with most their pay cut,
Some walk town without a bath,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some have coins and some no food,
Some post photos in the nude,
Some people look where they should,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some lay still and some make noise,
Some girls say they now have choice,
Some boys like to share their toys,
That’s modernity baby; that’s modernity,

Some folks say the church is fake,
Some get baptised by the lake,
A class system in the wake,
That’s modernity baby.…
