A Terrified New World

We let love go
For sex and violence
Traded our dreams
For minimum wages
Lost our way
To sit on a couch
Sold our souls
For imperfect bodies
Now our smiles
Stretched by pills
We only stop
To smell genetically-

    Really cool. Sounds like Brave New World meets 1984 meets something new and terrifying. Loving your work.
