prideful creatures are we

we hate to hear the truth
because the truth hurts
it stings
because our pride
won’t let it in
won’t let us digest
because if we do
the next logical step
would be change
and we are also
creatures of habit
and change does not compute
with how everyday life
is brought to us
we are shit
and we will all die
in the same phony
that we dress ourselves up in
