Captivity

I know what it’s like
To be an Orang-utan
With a sack or blanket
Covering your head
Not begging for attention
But wishing to be dead

Society is Sad

Wanting happiness is
as American as
Apple Pie

Is it our cleverness
from which we were
endowed

the impressive capacity
to comprehend, forever dwell

and eke out a living
in feeling
these feelings

we are vulnerable
at all times
open to attack
susceptible
defenseless
to depression,
more so than our
mammalian counterparts

Though even the
greatest apes
can be depressed
maybe they are lacking a
‘true’ auto-biographical self

Sense of being
that us scumbags
possess

What galvanizes goals?
status
security
suck-cess
superiority
What frames minds?
spirit
state
second-nature
specialty

When attracting mates:
Try to be
compelling
