Larger we must gain.

Life shall be large
and homes forever larger
expanding with each breath
larger we must gain.

Our time it slips
and dies
encased within the work
we must put in
and more we must
without enough
we cannot collect
the interest is minimal
when your low.

I don’t want your hopes
I don’t want what I’ve read
I don’t want what I’ve watched
everything is often larger
larger still
their houses
and their bodies.

There are movements now
fighting for over consumption
and I’m screaming here
underneath all the fat
and the scraps of the buildings
falling down
they’re given it away
because they want more now
always more
and still
they do not feel complete
because their brains have been fed
and fed more.

All they know
is that they must take
and take more
and do and have more
and then they die
and their children
they live the same.

They speak
nobody wants to work
and here’s a reminder to you
cleaning your home
taking care of the kids
cooking the meals you consume
the workers you pay
they work
and they work more
and they mustn’t be paid
a match to you
simply because
how else would you be rich?

Thanks for reading.
