I’m sure it’s just me,
But does anyone else see
We’re meaningless and insignificant?
None of it matters,
The former, the latter,
Speaking kind words, or a brutal rant.
We accomplish so little,
trapped here in mud and spittle,
Our souls escape only when we’re “late,”
People showing they care
Is becoming more rare,
More often I just see selfishness, hate.
To our nightmare real world,
Such curses I have hurled,
At the way most people just seem so mean,
Only in my daydreams,
People don’t have such schemes,
We suffer enough without adding the obscene.
