America is lost

America is lost

In wasted addictions 

every feeling expressed at the click of a button, beyond an emoji we can know longer express ourselves, the phone must do that for us,

overloaded with information at high speed, unable to distinguish truth from lie

growing numb from all the positive vibes only, reality is lost.

chess pieces on a board

played one against the other

they tell you to fear this and then call you phobic for listening.

The cries of war we can know longer hear

The inner cities are burning but there’s no smoke and the cafes are still functioning, all is well here…carry on

to a job endless and stagnant, wages can no longer hold up the lifestyle, one more job.

America has lost her way 

America is losing herself 

We know this but the winery is open.
