Lost in space?

Logical thought
Vaguely remembered
Gift of humanity
Discarded for trivia
Feed them on vile vacuities
Fiction calls itself reality
Filling the void of imagination
Media-created zombies slumber
Wide-eyed and awake before the screen
Vicariously satisfied
Their debasement of idols
Unconscious cruelty
Or ‘entertainment’
All unaware
Of the price

    The actual humans involved are lost to each other–and themselves too. (k)

    Gosh Sue, how sad, how true, what hope is there. I do look around and weep for humanity. So so sad. 💜

    How can something so unreal be described as ‘reality’?

    Such a waste of time. Much better to take a ramble with the dog. 😉

    I wonder if we, as a species, have always been susceptible to such ‘opiates’ of whatever form they may take, or is it just this modern era where we are so constantly assaulted that we must find numbness in order to continue?
