Reaping the Benefits

This artificial world

where no one feels,

too busy living a life

they think is real.

Oblivious to

their surroundings

and ignorant of

their life’s failings.

Materialism is their

true religion,

worshiping the next craze

to feed their addiction.

Swallowing the propaganda

they are fed

that will still be here

once they are dead.

Each one believes

they are different

but they are living in a world

which regards them

as insignificant.

They only matter as long

as they do as they are told

and even then, they are destined

to remain out in the cold.

For it is only the pre-selected few

who reap the benefits

while the rest of us

live our lives on credit.
