And the Point Is

Do you have one better?
something smart to say?

do you know all the fucking answers?

CONGRATULATIONS.

You are the asshole of the day.

Do you have a smile
that seems sincere or fake?

does it matter much?
or are you met with sneers, regardless?

GOOD JOB.

You are officially fucking worthless.

Truth be told,
we are far too numerous.

there’s not enough
food, or shelter, or jobs
(as if that last one’s even important)
for all of us.

we’ll never lift each other up.
we’ll just keep fighting
til our last tired sigh.

and as our vision fades
and the light dies,

the glorious tunnel caved in,

our last listless thoughts
will wonder why we ever lived.

And in response,
we will each be met with silence.
