Ships In The Night

Resting
In the glow
Of
Conspicuous consumption

Passersby engage
In
Heated
Discussion

Putting forth
Half-baked
Hasty
Assumptions

About
How he arrived
At this particular life
Junction

What exactly
It was
That crushed his
Gumption

Turning his back
On
Societal
Compunction

Was it
But a lack of
Proper
Instruction

Or
Perhaps
Imbedded government
Corruption

What
Would it take to
Spark his
Production

Putting
An end to
Chronic
Dysfunction

Passersby scurry on
To
Highbrow
Functions

While resting
In the glow
Of
Conspicuous consumption

Content
To let them espouse
Unfounded
Deductions
