To be switched off and blind to reality should be preferred to harm.
The cushion and blankets of technological escapism provide comfort,
But also perhaps an alternative to the rat race,
a muse that excludes shame, embarassment or pain
A choice, contradicting obsession with financial gain,
To read Wilde or to watch QI, must be preferred to the slog till you die?
I fear the bankers, admins and bureaucrats are the ones living a lie.
A life lacking ups or downs, is it better than zeros or tens,
If you view life for one minute through my bipolar lense
I for one desire numbness and beige,
Against the emotions of passion and rage.
