Love Poem: Priority Disorder

Priority Disorder

Keeping up with the Joneses
Tit for tat
Caught up in competition
"You got this? I'll get that"

Let me 1up you
Everything an attack
"Whatever you do,
I have to fight back"

Destroying ourselves
Breaking up our homes
Pride over love
Ending up alone

The things that define us
Are the things that we own
The the things that we've done
And the things that we've shown

Driven by jealousy
Feeding our greed
Filled with envy
Eyes glow green

Superficial materialism
Behavior obscene
Prioritizing what we want
Above what we need
