THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE EASILY DISTRACTED
(1/20/17)

there are those
walking purposely
toward

those
walking purposely
away from

that dark
door
of the soul

then
there are
the majority

milling about

none
too smartly

muddled
in society's
middle

either
unknowingly
aiding

or unknowingly
hindering

the efforts
of the other two
small
but highly focused
groups

the common
herd
sees no door
at all

only
the fencing
of conformity
keeping them
in check

they are
happy to feast
upon the fodder
provided

satisfied
with whatever
accomplishments

whatever
disappointments
are realized
in their unrealized
confinement

why look
any further?

let those
spiritual

those power hungry
freaks
go their way

reality TV
awaits
at the end
of the day
