Whittled Down

Who wants tragedy
when we can have
a whole lot of fake
frivolity going down.
Who needs a window
on the world –
when we can have
frosted glass and shade.
Who needs solemn
when we can have
antidepressants daily.
And a newsfeed
that tells us how it is –
in our own version
of the world –
whittled down.
