The Price of Convenience

A political wasteland,

injustices justified,

future impending

in which children cry

and the homeless die

and the scholars all sigh,

quietly saying, “I told you so,”

as the wage gap grows

and yesterday goes

violently into our memories.

 

Justifications of who we are

rub against who we used to be

and we lose ourselves, resigned.

 

In our quest for a convenient utopia

we worked together tirelessly,

creating from those dreams this dystopia.
