maya within four walls

Whole lives spent to build four walls

and secure your bubble safely inside

forgoing dreams for financial security

slave to mammon’s illusory respite


Enclosed in cubicles, enclosed in houses

enclosed in society, enclosed in glass houses

glorified rat race of human civilization

unquenchable avarice that consumerism espouses


Forgo your family, forgo your children

make it up with toys of vanity that will kill them

that which is most precious, reserve for your meetings

compensate the lack by showering greenbacks


Even your closest relationships

Money will hold to ransom

Trust and bonds formed in blood

fractured for  sums sufficiently handsome


The ubiquitous duality reflects off everybody

One behind close doors, another before society

to judge another for these would be pure folly

for these demons reside with each one of us
