Over Night

So,

When did the cost of love become so inflated?

Wasn’t it always free?

When did it’s quality become so deflated?

And whatever happened to honesty?

Where was the media when the truth became extinct?

Have we stopped using our hearts and minds to think?

Over night, it seems,

Men became bankers with little sense.

And now Women are reclaimed assembly lines, lacking decadence.

Perverted carnal vehicles with radical exchange,

Waking up to this feels extremely strange…

    thank God not all are as the poet sees- the decadence, etc. but one would think so if one stood in the middle of the sidewalk on 5th Avenue or sat watching people at work or the Mall. not sure how women lack decadence when they are “perverted carnal vehicles.” Did I misinterpret that?
