CRITIQUE OF PURE SOCIETY
(7/29/18)

you say
it is so
because
it is so

hardly
a justification
for the fantastical
everyday elements
of our lives

so much
of what we do
would be judged
prima facie
absurd

if not
for the fact
that the majority
consider
such machinations
as truth

funerals

weddings

mutual funds

the electoral
college

world
championships

social media

to argue
against
such overwhelming
odds
is self defeating

self
annihilating

better
to isolate
in order to
escape
the madness

I am
not
insane

I am simply
asocial
