Words by Stoic Facade
I am sick of it.
Listening to male celebrities on talk shows discussing their past with drinking, speeding, snorting,
Then comes along a women dressed in white there to help atone for his ways, lay down the toys and become a man.
They gloss over his transformation from boy to stoic
Fuelling the audience’s infatuation with words of wisdom like an acclaimed poet.
But I stand here and grit my teeth at this glorified revelation
Teaching young men to take off, slack off and enjoy being naked,
Because the system will shelter them from justified condemnation
As they can stuffed, fucked up and leave behind their abominations
Because a public apology, is more forgiving than words of sincerity
Washing away past sins through events of charity
See I don’t understand the societal convention of a boy becoming a man
When he stops drinking, learns to make a living and learns how to properly handle a women
You see this construct helps alleviate the pressure on the male consensus
But girls are taught from prenatal conception how to act to not draw attention
Forced to walk her line, told to uphold her domestic duties
Educated on the hysteria associated with superficial beauty
I am sick of this double standard, of boys being boys but girls ostracized by communities
It’s a short walk from a social standard to a Fascist eulogy.
