Grocery Store PassionConvenience is what they demandGrocery Store Passion by lamantedivita
As they careen through life
In their earth-toned mini-vans.
Lined aisles they walk through daily;
Dog food on aisle nine, thank you sir.
Condoms for their mundane affairs
On aisle 6, and gaily they'll take your soul
At the next register, please.
They take the best life has to offer, no doubt,
In shoddy houses cheaply made and overpriced,
Built over natural earth that weeps as sprawl
Cuts off brown barked arteries that link
Eempty space to Her heart.
They fight freedom every day.
Freedom-fighting 9 feet tall monstrocities
They pay terrorists 50 dollars at the tank
To fill up so they can sit and eat Mcdonalds
At redlights while their children,
With their synthetically-induced long attention span,
Watch scantily clad role models on tv.
Originality is what they sacrifice
As they hurdle up the ladder
And realize the middle will suffice.
