grand finally

it dismays me to no limit
the lengths and depths at which
the glitz and glamour grows
to provide pleasant distraction
while our humanity ebbs away

what dismays me even more
are the lengths we will go to participate
the depths to which we will sink

I begin to fear that our end
will not come with the quiet fizzle into silence
that I always hoped for
it seems to me now that it will come
with a deafening BOOM
and an explosion of pyrotechnics
