We’re in an ‘e-state’ Frame of Mind

Turned inward

We’re living in an “e*-state” frame of mind
Multinationals’ momentum drive us and our kind
Even when out with others in a lovely field
To our phones and tech we yield
Selfies our form of photography
“Why?” remains a mystery
Throw off the yoke of inward-facing hell
Try again living in I. R. L.
