Document for the Masses
The masses have told us (in spite of what we think)
they are content and happy without us,
keeping up with the Kardashians,
taking the sting out of mediocrity
through high fashion and reality shows,
changing the world by Degrees,
volunteering for AIDS and hunger,
cooling earth and rescuing animals,
The people fight for the right to
raise and destroy children,
tell us black is white
and deviation in-between, gray.
Alternative is normal,
and normal is odd.
Sometimes on a glittering summer day
the sun spills down
upon the masses while they play.
They smile and laugh,
soaking in the superficial light.
Above all, they dream alone
in the dark at home
mainlining Internet streams
to stop the bleeding.
