Sanctimonious Mankind

By Areej   

Painted nails,
Faces fake tanned,
Wrapped up in extravagance,
Welcome to Vanity's wonderland.

You'll find tainted eyes,
Drowned in narcissism,
with tinted hearts,
this is the modern Fascism

Hollow bones, hearts filled with pride,
Morality and Modesty thrown outside,
Harmonies of lust and greed are sung,
No need to check how world's destruction was Prophesied

Egomania is the trend, the Realism is a dream,
Originality is a little too mainstream,
Key to survival is to remain obviously oblivious,
Conceit and liquor should be the only things in your bloodstream.
