The Dream

For some, the Dream is alive.
For others, the Dream is dead.
The economic kettle thrives as each feeds the other.
Alive and dead.
For some, it’s a life spent taking.
For others, it’s a life spent giving.
The kettle warms as the gap between them widens.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
For some, the game is to win.
For others, the game is to simply survive.
The kettle boils as their worldviews collide.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
For some, the weight is profitability.
For others, the weight is sustainability.
The kettle shakes as the social pressures mount.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
Alive and dead.
Until the top shoots open, waking us with a piercing screech;
A reminder that it was all just a dream.
