The Burden of Humanity

I feel that I’m an oddity

A single abnormality

I think I need to look again

To find out what I really am

Because on earth you have to be

A capitalist so to be free

With consumerism to tie you down

And happy pills to turn your frown

Is this what our society

Will become inevitably

Unquestioning of existence

And live under such a false pretence

We dream so much of unity

Yet succumb to such insanity

With governments to clown around

And people die without a sound

The answer is not anarchy

Never believe in monarchy

Democracy is but a joke

Oligarchy will yield no yolk

So how then is it that some see

That capable of peace are we

It’s not apparent we’ll succeed

In any selfless kind of deed

I think I know to some degree

That we don’t like unanimity

Because we all need foes to fight

Our self-indulgent human plight

It is clear now that fear is key

In establishing sensibility

A common evil to destroy

For efforts which we must employ

I am not able to agree

With guns and bombs and cavalry

This evil is not tangible

And is more unpredictable

Idealism or ideology

We all must consider carefully

As either one can be turned bad

The results of which will be quite sad

I shall now reveal the enemy

It is indeed Philosophy

The urge to think so critically

Is detrimental to our psyche

We should not think existentially

It does not reflect reality

I hope you’ve noticed the irony

Which presents itself so silently
