Conformity's Bitch

To be content with the samness of your environment,

looking neither to the future of your own aeroplane and private pool

or to the past as sweet dream-like chaos,

you look unscrupously at the now

(just a bridge between two points in time)

feeling defeat and dis-satisfaction.

You have no idea what could come from this

fragile fracturing moment:

it could kill you slowly of cancer,

make you rich,

make you a hero of your generation,

make you you or nothing.

And you care for nothing,

not even the choice of life;

you want for absolution and void as you pick away

the scabs of normality. Day by day

by precious days passing into another conformity…

…a different normality.

Throw away soaps and dramas, reality

t.v dragging  to you this mundanity

of other people’s lives,

24 hour news keeping you blitzed into shock

but never truth,

and plain ol’ bullshit dripping you into distraction.

Wake – eat….

Go to work – eat

Come home – eat

Fuck – eat

your fucking days away

into sleep and oblivion

on the diet provided

to be conformity’s bitch.
