Diseased Virtues

Individualism, curse of the west
glorification of competition
pigs sucking fat at the trough of triumph
no concern are the emotions of others
the self is the sum of selfish desires
no more than inferiority complex
passing itself off as a life
culture corrupted by a false win or lose dichotomy
entrenched in its conqueror roots
so completely contaminated
cooperation and compassion are derided as faults
pro-social participation condemned
in preference of anti-social ambition
consuming abundantly
hoarding excessively
diseases mistaken as virtues
condensed to its most callous form
in conservatism
in crony capitalism
in a cold heart Hell-bent on maximizing profit
a far easier way to kill our children
than assault rifles in the classroom
