         Give Her Love

I'm nuking Pakistani villages,
she's dropping ransomware on hospitals,
our Lambo flexes vanity
[NOMONEY]
no, don't want money, got to give her love.

Hmmmm, Hi Tony, I've read this a couple of times and listened to the link and clearly I'm on a different planet than you.  I couldn't understand the minimal lyrics, I did like the music or should I say rhythm of the piece. It's addicting.  But back to this poem.  I'm afraid my brain is too simplistic.  I just don't get it.   The first two lines are clear literal images. Disturbing images.   I googled "Lambo" and kept coming up with a car.   Yes showing off a Lamborghini certainly could suggest vanity.   But if you can afford a Lamborghini you can afford to be a little vain, am I over thinking this?    I'm not asking for an explanation of the poem, I'm just trying to connect here, help.  This one totally confuses me

Hi Judi, it was great chatting with you again. I'll repeat a couple of things I said in our call, because I get it that a few things might be obscure and not readily apparent to all readers.

As I said in our call, I considered adding footnotes but didn't. You're right, "Lambo" is in reference to Lamborghini, an automobile, and "vanity" refers to an automobile license plate/tag, a vanity plate. The link to the musical composition is nothing. I throw those in willy-nilly, haphazardly, on my topics, for fun; they help me remember what might have inspired the poem to begin with and rarely mean anything at all. 🤷‍♂️

Thank you for your kind reply,

Tony 😊

Like the muscularity of flexes. The first two lines spoke to me of distraction and vexation. A need to vent not heal. Of course, Brits can't buy love...the way the pound is devaluing 🤣

Comeon, Phil it’s only paper! Don’t feel bad, the entire system is in a state of collapse. Anyway, it’s never about the money, it’s always about the girl.

Thank you for your kind reply on this less-than-magnum opus.
