Entertained And Distanced - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The expense of keeping minds entertained and distanced,
To sustain a maintaining of those frivolities kept...
Has become more prioritized than the realities lived.
And those who oppose and protest,
The thought of being threatened...
Of losing this as a main interest kept to protect,
Even though their ability to afford them has lessened,
The keeping of themselves as hostages is more accepted.
Regardless if the effect has produced mental defects.
