“Expensive wines with a hook of denial.” 
An attempt to make a dying nation 

feel better about the grave

decorated with 


smart tvs 


Mac pros 

expensive wines with a hook of denial, 

all this to hide the slow labored breath 

of an empires death. 

Illusions sold by the powers that be

making other nations believe a people are ungovernable 

yet failing to show 

crafty helter skelter 

disconnecting a people from reality gaining control of the masses 

who now 

hear what isn’t being said 

see what isn’t there 

believe what isn’t happening. 

All of these escapism 


poverty is still poverty 

death is still death 

unemployment still unemployment 

politics are still politics.
