What you see
Is what you get.

A bold statement
That’s always dynamite on paper,
But not so hot in real life.

Caught inside
This whirlwind of hot air,
Empty promises,
And immaculate lip-service,
We never take the time
To think things over.

If we did,
Just for an instant,
There’s the danger we might notice
That what think you see,
More often than not,
Is what you wanted
To get.
