it’s an exciting world out there so
don’t make important decisions while doing coke.
It’s all a delusion of course, living in a bubble
you schizo-cynic of the Facebook age
thinking you can change the world posting
while still running Windows XP
Don’t you know the villains will always be with us?
making you wear an employee badge
paying you in virtual money
the real software that runs the world?
Watching the counterfeit heroes play us
Rambo and Top Gun, Comic-Con and K-girls
video bitches helping us hide the pain underneath;
just buy some more shit with that virtual money.
It’s Friday afternoon;
a businessman’s time to meet his whore
in a dark hotel room
and let her swallow his pride.
“Meaningless, a chasing after the wind,” I believe Solomon called it!

Best wishes, Pete.
Sad commentary on the warped downward trajectory of American culture.
Great post. Direct hit.
