Reality Fraud

Starting to question 
if reality is real
Society seated in a medicine cabinet
so nobody has to feel

The world has convinced the truth to lie
Manufactured tears produced
so no one has to cry
Everyone banking off yesterday's credit
so nobody has to go out and try

Walking plastic seems to be fine
Cowards choosing surgery
to put in a spine

I stay real and continue to live
You sold out  
and refused to give

    Very well penned Chris! Reality continues to become an illusion many are comfortable with ignoring. I like the image of putting ina spine - it's like humans have no backbone to deal with what's real!
