Canvassing wealth

creative piece about absurdities of priveledge
i feel sorry
for
these people
disillusioned
by their wealth
class
robs them
of the ability
to have life
after
consumption

big houses
big tvs
big SUVs
passels of children
expensive
imported
shrubbery

these are the
poorest
people
i have ever
met
brainwashed
into
believing
that
they
are
well off
they lack
heart
and
mind
submissive
sheep
with golf clubs
and
shoes
soaked in blood
out
enjoying
their ignorance
they don't know
pain
they like it
that way
i pity them

i
too
am soaked
in blood
...
but at least
it is
my own
at least it is my own
at least it is my own
