Our Need to Fill
All the things we know about
the world, which make us feel
superior. Lies, omissions shout-
ed as truth, half-truth, we steal,
or our own. How stupid we are.
Decisions we make which lead
to fortune and or disaster’s mar
in inexorable, ponderous speed,
fast; we should not blink. Still,
we persist, believe all the slop
we consume in our need to fill
days with distraction, nonstop.
If we’re not always in action,
will we see our dissatisfaction?
