Why was such a name given to us?

Us of the instant-add-water,
say-no-to-drugs, and
use-non-aerosol-hair-spray
(if you please) clique.

The ones who are supposed to
spur labels, yet love commercials
and eat up the snap-crackle-
pop-be-anything-you-wanna-
be-philosophies
with a tarnished spoon.

But shouldn’t our label (for
this oh so labeless group) be as
murky as we are?

Because we really are the first
group to have our cake and
eat it too, while those next
door are starving.

When we peel our skin away
we are just like the rest,
and singing in the choir
on alternate Sundays is not
going to change that.
