Western Culture

It is so noisy and busy 
And self-indulgent
Our western culture

Empty egos seeking youth
And wealth and adventures
Traveling from one 'aha moment'
To the next

Testosterone laden lads
seeking release
In guns and cars and fists and pulpits
Yes pulpits

This is nothing new
These fruitless, worthless pursuits
Same tired roles of hero/villain
Saint/sinner, predator/victim

Same tired costumes
Of King and Queen
Of cowboy and princess
Of rebel and conformist
Morphed over and over

Same missionary style life
With man on top
While the world contines
To devolve
