Buried in poverty.
Barely making ends meet.
A chance to depend
on government assistance.
The system likes it that way.
Control the majority of the people
for the good of a few old farts.
It’s a flawed society.
Intent on getting rich
off of people’s lack of research.
Tell them what they want to hear.
Show them what they want to see.
They’ll believe anything
they are programmed to believe.
No questions asked.
Keep them distracted and in the dark.
They don’t want to wake up anyway.
As long as, everything is decorated nicely,
it doesn’t even matter at all
what’s going on behind the scenes.
They are too busy anyway to notice
what’s really going on.
Distracted by the brilliant technology.
Blindfolds pulled tightly over eyes.
Ear buds tucked neatly in ears.
Taste buds compromised.
Air fresheners all around.
Cannot smell the school of fish
destroyed for a lack of knowledge
