Fake Souls And Other Fake Things Poems By Jake Cosmos Aller Index Fake souls Fake Jake Fake Relationships Fake Friends Fake smiles from my unpublished chapbook, "Fake Things" available on my web page https://theworldaccordingtocosmos.com ake Souls In this hyper-materialist era We find ourselves in Is there such a thing as a true soul? Or have we all become Nothing but fake souls The rights to our souls Long ago sold To the evil masters of the universe The secret programmers Of this cosmic video game We all live in And our dear leader Donald Trump Has a fake soul As he acts like he is robot Trying to fake real human emotions And usually failing miserably Fake Jake Many years ago I proclaimed to the world I was Jake And I was not a fake But I was the real deal But over the years I too have become fake And yes Jake Is also nothing but a fake Fake Relationships In this modern world Where everything seems fake There are few genuine relationships left Most relationships are market driven How can this person help me In my career or in life What can I get from them How can I use them for my advantage And what do they want in return And we are all nothing but personal brands Competing all the time for the next gig job And romance Has been reduced to sexual lust And nothing more And few people want babies Any more Babies are expensive And limit your ability To compete for your next bed partner And being real, telling people what we really think Is usually a CLM – career limiting move so to speak So, everyone hides their true feelings And are resigned to living this fake life In a world filled with fake people I wonder if there are any real people left Fake Friends In this world of fake things Where nothing is real Nothing is authentic And the market rules us all There is no room For real friendship We are all using each other To get ahead So we pretend to be friends All the time Plotting against our so called friends To get ahead The market rewards the most vicious Sociopathic values rule the market Friendship is for wimps And losers Those winners end up Alone all alone For they have no real friends But boy do they have real enemies For in this fake world of ours Perhaps hate is the one real emotion That has survived Fake Smiles The old soul classic Smiling faces got it right “Smiling faces sometimes Pretend to be your friend Smiling faces show no traces Of the evil that lurks within (can you dig it?) Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes They don't tell the truth Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof Oh, oh, yeah Let me tell you The truth is in the eyes 'cause the eyes don't lie, amen Remember, a smile is just a frown turned upside down my friend So, hear me when I'm saying Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes, yeah They don't tell the truth Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof (Beware) beware of the handshake That hides the snake (can you dig it, can you dig it?) I'm a-tellin' you beware of the pat on the back It just might hold you back Jealousy, (jealousy) misery (misery) envy (envy) I…” Boy did the singer get it right In this world of fake things Where the market rules us all The art of the fake smile Has been perfected They say that many people Have mastered the art of the fake smile Where you smile and pretend to like someone your victim does not suspect that the smile is because you are thinking of stabbing them in the back oh yes in a world of fake people beware, beware of smiling faces Five Fake Souls.docx
