A Life Sentence

To the conscious life is weird
where so many levels meet
Is life just one big dining hall
of chuck the living wait to eat

Observe your pecking orders
a ruling etiquette of things
Bastions of the psychopath
divinely righteous style of kings

Head honcho’s reading menus first
waiters hold their breath in fear
Consent is one more power play
a smiling tiger’s thin veneer

Citizens with starving pangs
watch as mighty mouthfuls sate
Licking thumbs whilst eyeing crumbs
taking turns to lick the plate

Look at life how great it is
hail the winner on the heap
Who needs to grab and store it all
for blind eyed courtiers feigning sleep
