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 own failings.

Materialism is
their
true religion,
worshiping the next craze
to feed their addiction.

Swallowing the propaganda
they are fed
which 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.
