Labour all day to make another man's dime.

I find myself on the wrong side o' this paradigm.

Turn on the television, distract me from my career.

There's a newsman speaking, I'm sorry I didn't hear.

There's a politician speaking, I'm sorry, it's not very clear.

There's an army of robots marching, excuse me while I blankly stare.

let me lose my mind to the screen.

jingle your keys before me.

I am bereft  of independent thought,

what our ancestors predicted this was not.

For those on top, this is what they want,

an army of robots bereft of thought.

Because the drudgery of life can be a festival of mediocraty

we think that we have free will
to do as we please
making decisions on our own


We're better than you are
We're smarter than you are, Jewboy.
That's why we don't need to study a goddamn thing.
Because our Power is derived
From  the Absolute Truth of Jesus Christ.

    text("What­'s up?", 10, 25);
    //text("Awful. Please I need someone. Anyone.", 10, 75);
    text("I'm fine", 10, 75);

Wanted to try a completely different format. I wrote it like I would write in java with the Processing app. It is pretty much a code poem.
