Mobile or Cell

unaware
it defines my fellow countrymen
once I thought them gullible
I thought them ignorant and arrogant
but those are symptoms
symptoms of a complete lack of awareness
they believe they are free
wild horses loosed upon the prairie
when in truth
they are blinkered oxen
yoked to a cart
heavy with the bodies of the dead
they drag it behind them
forward marching
gazing hypnotized
into handheld mirrors of their lives
as they step blindly into traffic
barely even registering
the blare of the horn
the screech of the brakes
the scent of scorched rubber
they die as they live
