Humanity

Truth is defined by manipulation
Equality is profiled by algorithms
Fear is seeded by what might be forfeit
Prosperity is measured by debt
Freedom is constrained by obedience
Healthcare is dispensed by demographics
Welfare is torture by informatics
Poverty is a collateral statistic
Hunger is nourished by greed
Homelessness is a gross domestic product
Morality is fashioned by celebrity
Aspiration is forged in mediocrity
Education is weaponised by ideology
Sexuality is a transactional affair
The Earth is suffocating . . .

But rejoice in your own survival,
when all that remains is the impulse to exist
and an expectation of love.
