They keep us amused with bread and circuses
Or should I say theme parks and cruises
Or should I say T.V. and Netflix
Or I maybe could say
Instagram and Facebook
Or I might even say
Football and baseball
Fishing and drinking
And a plethora of other things
That blind us from reality.
And we wonder why
We have a problem communicating
With each other,
Isolated on our own separate islands
Where we have everything we want
But are deathly unhappy.
Wait until I see if Google has the answer,
After I finish my binge watch on Netflix.
