YELLOW ALARM NO. 6

ego-tripping till the bills come due
or the babies

hitchhiking? there were still
free rides

the chemically induced mysticism or hedonism
had no legs
its wheels never touched the ground

the endless contradiction
energy conservation yet megawatt rock concerts
anti-consumerist yet the latest recreational drugs
used with a television blaring
or a sofa blocking the window

with no affiliation
no public spirit
no charitable impulse
no knowledge of history or collectivity
we’ll pay dearly
