We Submit

We sail 
on seas of inconsequence
living
on islands of irrelevance
under a siege
of stupidity
showered
with banality

deep
in our minds
sleeps
the source of the individual
dormant
in the bright light
of entertainment and distraction
unseeking
drifting
with the current
numbed
to submission

life rafts
for the unliving
floating
in the media stream
five minutes
of infamous reality
mindless
entertainment to kill.
