Apathy - Poem by Drew Hoffman

Preoccupied with the hurdles of everyday life
And burdened by the lust for luxuries
Our vision is obsructed, the bigger picture out of sight
Out of mind, I might Tweet about this
In 140 characters or less
But first I need a lattee, new rims for the SUV

There is no time for thoughtfulness
In this kingdom ruled by greed
And compassion is a forgotten Goddess
We worship the god of avarice now, enthroned upon Wall street
We've pushed Jesus to one side
To devour the Gospel of Prosperity

The King's sons are not 'Christian' in any real sense
We leave the strip club early because tomorrow is Sunday
Must keep up the pretense of upright family
We must keep our clothing pristinely white
We listen to our IPOD's on the way to meetings we must keep
And saunter past the dying kitten, too frail to fight.
