“Cubical Maze”

So much noise
TV blaring
staring blindly
electric mind-fetters
speaking nonsensical jumble
falsified excitements
and justified means.
Ice clinking
How trained
we have become.
Push the button
take your treat.
Programmed behavior
follow the path.
To survive
we must obey
the men in white.
Latex hands of God
masterfully recording
the findings of
His latest experiment.
Take your number
wait your turn
escape is forgotten
as you navigate
engineered mazes
of cubicle-lives.
Outside now
breathe the cancered fumes
all for the sake
of a moment’s peace.
