The People’s Opiate

Encouraging but not strangely encouraging
the lack of self in sense
sensors stuck in overdrive
helm stuck on abide

Familiar yet not strangely familiar
the state of comfortably numb
so long since I lived there
now just the face I wear

Endearing yet hardly endearing
the debt I never paid
proportionate to the loss
I never counted the cost
