Today

A Poem by Jwakefield

Sugar sweetened sickness,
And prescribed perception purification.
Kaleidoscope cardboard cartons
Fling fast food frailty.

A reimagined reality,
Freed from freedom,
Graciously given imprisonment
And thankful for it.

Ingenious in convenience.
Naturally nullified.
Razed and rebuilt
Into no one's image.
