DISINVENTION
(5/16/16)


we're hesitant

reluctant

to relinquish
our ease

our comfort

our perceived
pleasure

for a more
Spartan mindset

it's understandable

we've become
accustomed
to our manufactured
lifestyles

in some cases
the softer way
is all
that we know

we consider
ourselves clever
for our labor
saving

time saving
creations

still
we seem
a miserable lot

not appearing
to understand
that we've constructed
a here and now
spiritual hell
with our concomitant
technological leisure

a few do
comprehend
the fundamental
conundrum

they
step away

refuse
to cooperate
any longer
with this fabricated
fa├žade

they are
free

appearing
to the majority
to be complete
idiots

their simple
joy
not considered
to be
a mitigating
circumstance
