DEATH BY CUBICLE

Monday.

Dead map city of fallen decay the days
Are only numbers to the misinformed
The spectators looking towards some
Elysium but the buildings are made of Stone
And glass but

Somewhere there must be sanctuary
Somewhere
There must be love

But here
Within
These walls
There is none

Nothing

But the
Sound of
Our own
Slow breathing
Our own
Slow deaths

A vacancy
Of humanity
Sitting in
Chairs

Time’s up

This was
All just
A boring
Simulation

And then just
A few short
Years
Later?

You’re
Dead.
