Amidst the Haste

Amidst the haste…

Blank yet determined faces
Rush towards a future I cannot see
The great train of our collective endeavor
Steams and puffs to imminent disaster
A train wreck ahead which only the crazy of us see

Staring vacuously at our in-flight entertainment
We cram every orifice
And attempt to fill every void
With our own favourite opiates
Via which we can avoid

Any semblance of reason
Any moment of stillness
Any shattering of ignorance
Any sharing of tenderness
For everything within certain parameters it must fall

Any passionate embrace of worthy cause
Any dogged determination
Any one pointed intellect
Any breathtaking beauty
Recruited it must be, for a price can it be bought

When shall we awaken
From this God forsaken dream?
When every refuge becomes refuse
Shall then we band together?
Amidst the haste I ask this and with haste I implore your reply
