Panic sets
The terror of expectations that cannot be met
Mission unreasonable
Palpable the suffocation of structure
40 hours per week and then some
Indentured servitude to objects which bear no meaning
The dilemma of decadence
Taught to worship the item and not the idea
Commodity genius prostrate on the altar of commerce
Our world too concerned with worth
Locust civilization, consume until you crumble
Family, community, humanity, exchanged for goods at the corner store
Or worse, for cash
Life and death between the lines of the ledger book
All that you love, already gone
