Delusion in a Box

Delusion in a Box

written by: Steve Green



I like my box..

Love it you could say..

Though I use to not
relish the restrictions
those walls brought..

Cause I had been indoctrinated
by the whole freedom myth..

That “Birds need to fly” bullshit..

So one day I flew away..

Blew my peer pressured ass
right out of my cozy coop..

Crash landed..

Bad choices..

It happens..

So I traded in my frayed wings
for that retirement from everything thing

Now I do so love
my flimsy cardboard box
for the security it brings

Fake as it may be

For in this fleeting life
self delusion is the thing
