Soaps and detergents, aerosols and creams,
Created to make our lives better,
So we can live longer and do more things.
A dozen televisions over eighty years or more.
Tons of food we pass momentarily through our bodies
And a pharmacy full of drugs, increasing as we get older.
Mainly running deficits of spirit and humanity;
Lacking compassion and empathy for others pain,
So we can focus more intently on passing the time.
Or is it from the chemicals that help make us better people.
Heart attacks and strokes, pills whether we need them or not,
All to keep our carcass healthy, while the soul rots in melancholy.
What is needful in life is happily missed.
We can no longer make time for what IS important;
There's just too much pressure these days...yeah, that's it!
