A perpetual state of trauma

A perpetual state of trauma
by Remigius de Souza

In your society i.e. high-class society, or classless society,
of Industrial Civilisation, comprised of individuals,
as if no one is born of biological parents,
but everyone is a product of high-class-culture
of science–technology–trade–consumption,
laced with aesthetics of hedonism by your overbearing senses;
touch, hearing, taste, vision, smell, sex and terror (fear).

For you the rest of humanity just belongs to the Underclass Incognita.

And your high-class-culture (or dharma!) turns everything –
Earth, Waters, Air, Life at large… including Other Humans – into a commodity
for the consumption for your high-class-society,
and for the display extravagant of your high-class-culture.

Your high-class-culture developed (but never evolved?)
out of five thousand years of civilised society,
knows no option
either for the revival of Life,
which, of course, is not in your hands,
or allow anyone or anything a natural death.

but is left to live a life of an invalid,
by benevolently pumping drugs and chemicals
to leave a body –
from the Earth and Waters to Plants, Animals and Other Humans –
in a perpetual state of trauma.

(Note: Sadly, fragmented split personality that I am, I address this to myself though a negligible fragment that I am of Industrial Civilisation.)
