WASTED PERSPECTIVE
(7/26/18)

"you are
missing out
on life!"

they exhort
Brother Bollocks

"you need
to get out
there!

before
it's all over!"

what they
mean
of course
is that he's
missing out
on society

society
is their
life

he will
readily admit
to that
exclusion

a contemplative
with no
social recognition
is an anomaly
that they would
rather not allow

a deadbeat

Brother Bollocks
asks them

"how
can I be
missing out
on life
when I am
alive?"

they shake
their heads

rush off
to the next
event

where
they will take
many photos

to prove
their existence
