depressing thoughts #10 billion

the world's more fueled 
by pettiness 
than it ever was 
by gasoline 

and even the dreamers 
know by now 
the dangers fraught 
in being seen 

so we buy our wares 
and sell our soul 
for junky food 
and image control 

just to wake and find 
we're no longer cool; 
an abandoned fad 
and a fossil
