Our vicarious life

8 Nov 2020 9:37 Am Television to get my vision internet to see revision Radio to set the pace and off to work and run the race Eat to fast and shave my face didn't even get a taste Coffee black caffien high kiss the wife a quick good bye didn't even see her face Work all day don't think of life just chasing fuel to keep the lights on Joke with Joe and what do you know lunch is gone can you work long Back and forth we travel short do not play but watch the sport See the american family on tv then off to sleep and dreams to sort Up again at the crack of dawn at it again the same old song Blinked today and my kids were grown years were short they should have been long Slow down they say enjoy the day but you can't there's life to pay So through others lives and imaginations mind we stay This is the modern world all full of hype This is our vicarious life
