The World Has Run Inside!

The world has run inside,
Now we must sit with ourselves
Away from the buoys of brotherhood,
In this darkened sea where worries are like water.

The world has run inside
So that Death can have a challenge,
Yet we can’t seem to stop the parade of selfishness
No matter how much logic is rained from above.

The world has run inside,
With all the toilet paper one could ever need,
So now the shit of this system
Will never be wiped clean! What a shame that

The world has run inside
Leaving only the “dispensable” workers
To carry the load of our “great” country like Olympians
As those at the top safely enjoy their luscious bailouts.

The world has run inside,
But we still cannot escape the dancing demons
Of greed. We must meet our status
As the puny minions to their mythic climbs for

The world has run inside
In search of precious safety,
And yet they are still calling us out to work
Like the numbers we are!
