Sea Of Nightmares - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

We live while we swim in a sea of nightmares.
Greed has destroyed our world like a great tsunami,
he has handed us a sheet of paper with a number on it.
This number measures the value of us because it is in our wallets.
It shows us what we can buy and forces us to make a choice
on how we are going to divide it up between us all.
Some get steak to eat and others get porridge
that tastes as bland as their poor lives.
Is it really drive that brings us all above our situations
or is it just the luck of the draw?
I think it is the luck of the draw because we are
infected with natural selection and to some
it is a very cruel trick that is played upon them.
Being born in a world like this one is a cruel enough trick,
we have natural disasters and man made ones.
It seems that the man made ones have been much more disastrous.
There is the war on oil and the destruction or prosperity
that it brings to the 'lucky' bearer of this poison.
There is the economic war that every one is fighting to gain
as much as they can no matter what the outcome of this fight may be.
There is the war for technology where everyone is trying
to make the best products or the worst and sell for the most.
Everywhere you look someone is scrimmaging for something,
whether it is for their image or for their survival.
Is there ever going to be an end to this madness?
I see the madness grows stronger everyday.
