Whiskey & Popcorn by James D. Casey IV

We live in a void
Crossed between hell and
The digital world

Television screen faces
Closed caption thoughts
Our rulers have antennas
In place of horns

Everything is on fire
Crashing and burning
But all we can see
Is what we’re fed

The underbelly reality
Is far worse than it seems
Things they don’t show us
Terrible and unforgiving
Driven down
Hidden behind coding
Pretty 1’s & 0’s

It’s all in the way
You look at it
I guess
Ignorance is bliss
After all

I just hope
There’s plenty of
Whiskey & popcorn
For the season finale
