Escapism

choose
your escapism
wisely

choose
it wisely
in your nationalism
patriotism
progressivism
or liberalism

choose
you escapism
wisely
in how you accept
the history
of yourself
and the world

choose
it wisely
in your drugs
natural
pharmaceutical
electronic
or artistic

choose it wisely
in your holiness
chastity
or hedonism

choose
your escapism
wisely
in whatever
ancient
or contemporary
secular or holy
concepts
of family
and existence
you accept

choose
your escapism
into yourself
or the world
with caution

choose
your escapism
into your reflection
or other people
or nature
or the gospel
with caution
cause there's only
so much
to be gained
from any

choose
your escapism
into your persona
or psyche
with care

beware
the escapism
of poetry
either theirs
or yours
that powders
buttholes
with sugar
or lye

beware
your escapism
into lethargy
or aimless activity

beware
your escapism
into causes
or
the religion
of no
causes
at all

beware 
of daydreams
of less sheltered 
more meaningful
lives
cause these daydreams
still
aren't
living
since only living
is 
living

beware
of escapism
into 
subcultures
countercultures
clans or cults
of overmen
underground men
knights of faith
or infinite resignation
or angels
among them

choose
your escapism
wisely
cause
the words
and ideas
of poets
prophets
philosophers
and politicians
are fanciful
and sweet
or savory
to the ears
and
though dripping
and
delectable
to the soul
it still
doesn't make them
right

choose
your escapism
wisely
cause the more
it seduces
the soul
the more difficult
it is
to escape

so
try
to choose
your escapism
wisely
though it's a mystery
if it's even possible
to do
