freestyle sonnet #101: A SONNET ENDORSING METAPHYSIC CLASS WAR


lesser of two evils sequel after sequel 
diminishing returns, as the world (crashes) burns 
fossilized remnants, civilized life inequal 
in quality, the rich kids not sharing turns 

with the rest of us, the wretched of us earth folk 
falsely awake to woke marketing angles from 
obtuse directions, choking on digital smoke 
screens, unscrolling intelligence that's hella dumb 

trusting data metrics DNA to devils 
calculating how to skim blood from stoned souls lost 
in techno (ill) logical fog without bezels 
of wisdom to help guide, suffering from exhaust 

because squeezed until can't breathe, then squeezed a bit more 
a sonnet endorsing metaphysic class war
