Red Pill Rx

In a whirlwind of distraction,
Beset by terminal dissatisfaction,
You fail to recognize
These moments in the sieve.

You grasp at the expedient,
Like a dog, so obedient,
You no longer recognize
The very life you live.

Open your eyes!
Tired eyes!
Tear dimmed eyes!
Dollar sign eyes!
Look around you!

You’ve been lulled into a trance.
A sleepwalk dance.
Awake and recognize
What you have to give.
