CAVEAT EMPTOR
(2/22/16)


beyond
the material
we are buying
concepts
every day

we buy them
with our beliefs

our beliefs
in the constructs
of society

so much
of what seems
common sense
in our lives

black
and white
reality

is pure
fantasy

made up
for our benefit

for the benefit
of those
who prosper
from our beliefs

perhaps
we lost something
when we came
out
of the caves

when we came
down
from the trees

at one time
we saw the world
for what
it was

now
we only see
what we have
made
of the world

we wonder
how our lives
would have looked
without the metaphysics
of modernity

put
your money
away

it's
no good
there
