Consumer Based Economy

Lifeless bodies wander,
lured by chimeras and empty promises,
pushing aside pain,
drowning in distractions.

Souls lament their neglect;
eyes refuse to look within;
hearts fail to understand;
minds choose to consume.

Meanwhile mounting deficits,
within and without,
threaten to swallow us whole.
