The Hollywood Machine

Oh baby, you didn’t know that I’m bad news,
But now it’s time to let you go,
And have you pay your dues.

Give me all you got and a little more,
I’m entitled to your life now;
All’s fair in love and war.

I know it’s a lot to ask and it’ll never be enough,
But now that I’m fed up,
It’s time that you pay up.

You owe me back every dime,
And not the kind of payment,
That runs off a credit line.

You have one shot,
And you reap just what you sow,
But it’s all predisposed in this vocation that you chose.

I’ve got a whole kingdom full of sheep,
Spinning straw into gold,
But my greatest feat is that when I’m done with you, I’ll leave you out stone-broke in the cold.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
