Bubbledom

Bubbledom
         by Odin Roark

How frothy
That first taste
When some upper layer
Seems the treat d’ jour

Whether in big business
Big politics
Big Hollywood
Or Wall Street
Aspirations to be part of that bubble
Prove anything but frothy

How seductive the connection 
To feel complete
Without threat from the outside
Without knowledge of collateral lives

Such an existence
Seemingly insulated from jeopardy
Ignores outside reality
Shuns cognizance of truth

Lines swell
Vicarious pursuit grows
So many now crowd inside the bubble
That never pops

Until it does
