Mirage

Fading in the distance

As I rub my eyes

I don’t believe what I see

Could this really be right?

Day in and day out

A slave to the trade

Going through the motions

And carrying a weight

Money comes and money goes

As millions watch with lust

Sacrificing life and limb

Just to get “enough”

I approach the scene

In utter disbelief

I can barely catch my breath

As I  realize that the slave is me

– A D.W. Original
