The System

Nothing is happening
Because the system still exists
Many people
Including those who run it
Are dependent on it
They seek happiness out of
Money
Commodity
Happiness might be redefined in a new system
But we’re all so dependent
On the individualistic kind of happiness
That we don’t want to change
More people are content with freedom than are
Those who are at the bottom end of the system
Who will be happier in a new system perhaps
As their needs can be met
But that’s never going to happen
Because a majority of us
Are blind slaves
Don’t we realise
Our pseudo-happiness is more important
Than others’ true happiness
