A Little Label Caught In A Fable!

Did you know labels are caught? It sure seems like one dirty plot. A plot that is all around yet is never found. Or would that be seen? I guess we shall see what I mean.

A label for this,
A label for that.
Some cause bliss,
Others fall flat.

Some sure lie.
Others pretend.
Some gets a why,
Some may offend.

Like Gluten Free.
It can be a lie.
Below a certain percentage spree,
And they can lie from upon high.

Labels on clothes,
To know they will fit.
Labels on backhoes,
So you don't mess with that shit.

Labels on food,
They can omit and lie.
I know that is rude,
But told you that on the fly.

Labels for you.
Labels for me.
Those come due,
And can screw thee.

Labels for age.
Labels for race.
Can't turn the page,
They are stuck in place.

Can't change it.
Nope, no way.
Society says so.
Like political idiots on display.

Need that label.
Need to hate the other.
Some consideration is a fable.
Hate even if your brother.

Love the label?
Have one on the table?
Notice how they seem stable?
Letting them change is a fable.

Labels seem to come every which way. You humans sure like them at your bay. Do you label all upon view? Labels sure aren't new. I do have a good label to come to pass. I labeled myself a little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  6. I had a label on me
    it didn't make me squee
    with delight
    but I recoiled in fright
    at the label I had
    because it made me so sad
    but some labels can be good
    and can change my entire mood

  11. Stick a label on your forehead and send yourself away
    To a very tiny island where girls in grass skirts sway
    Coffee beans are made for brewing, so the label said
    Brew yourself a black strong cup when you jump outta bed

  13. I hear legally, some paints can have lead in them in they don't exceed some small percentage. I've been around latex and oil paints for so long I really doubt anything has happened but it is scary.

  19. Labels can be good.
    Like the ones on food.
    Wrong labels can be bad.
    Like the ones on people that are sad.
    Have a great weekend.

  20. I like labels on some things- like products I am buying. I like to know what is in something (ingredients). Most other labels I can think of I can do without. :)

    1. But some products still lie
      Find out though when you give them a try

  21. I've got no problem with most product labels, especially the warnings on them. Some of them are downright funny. (Like a "May contain peanuts" warning on a can of peanuts. HA!) But it's horrifying when we try to pigeonhole people with labels instead of looking at each one as an individual.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, seems redundant with the peanut one
      Pigeonholing people sadly gets many a run

  22. And then there's the label that
    reads it's no fable:
    "Don't remove this label!
    I don't care if you're able.
    But it's been added to say
    Don't take this away!"

  23. I do like some things to be labeled, especially food ingredients on my groceries. I do label my crafts so I don't spend a lot of time looking for what I need. Other than that, I don't have use for many other labels.

  24. We do love labels, the more the better which can suck. If I want pants to fit, I must look at the label but if it is for pants the. A label comes in good. Won't buy what I can't fit into

  25. Yikes, you mean to tell me GF can actually have gluten if the percentage is small enough? That seems a tad dangerous to me. Good gravy. I like labels on my youngest child's things, if he's taking them out of the house.

    1. Yep, below a certain percent they can lie
      Most don't, but many will give it a try

  26. Labels too small to read
    As they trick us with their greed
    Calling stuff healthy when it's not
    Saying there's little of X when it's a lot
    No sugar, just tons of other shit
    Making you ill and not a little bit

    1. Yep, play up one good

  29. I hate labels, especially on people (like ADHD or mentally challenged! Followed closely by status labels on clothing and such. But food nutrition labels ~ that's a good one, once you work around their trickery.
