CD rom’s, tele coms
All the hi-tech of cyberspace
I-pads, the latest fads
All your friends who have no face.
I-phones, killer drones
Wars of empire thousands of miles away
Civilians dying, darkened sighing
The hounds of hell no longer held at bay.
Reality tv, lost at sea
Sucking hard down in the bowl
Celebrity news, further clues
Of digging the inescapable hole.
Patients dead, insurance led
Health care completely run amok
Priorities failing, people wailing
Over the perversion of the hospitalized buck.
Chairmen ceo’s, corporate joes
Hoarding wealth is their mantled creed
Orgasmic delight, joyous height
When they fulfill their insatiable greed.
Corruption spread from bed to bed
Until it has infected the entire nation
Politicians bought, internal rot
How long before the coming annihilation.
Is this all there is?
Is the best we can do?
Are we even trying?
Does life have any meaning to you?
