Addiction is a monster
It is the vermin that lurks around the dark
slithering scales around the heart and mind
confide with chains, he is a slave.
money, money, riches
a dream we (not I ) want to be
and yet hope, hope, hope is all we do.
Slot by slot prolonging torture
of an illusion not guaranteed.
Why do we hurt the one we care?
routines don't exist
society carries a monster.
