If That’s All There Is

Give it up to mankind and let loose
For another flash in the pan
For the next hangover
So that you can stand beside the casket

Disregard the poetry of generation
Because an annotated bibliography was not included
Not realizing it was the condensed version
That reality is not defined by just zeros and ones
But cut loose by an infinite vocabulary

Shun the prospect of peace
For the sake of instant gratification
Justification for self-consuming inertia
On account of seeking your due fortune
Sell your soul by denying its existence

Claim the intellectual high ground today
And fill the hole with a prostitute tonight
Paying a dear price just to numb yourself
Inhale your segue into the distractions of tomorrow
Still hopeless

“If that’s all there is, my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is”
