Sight hearing smell

Senses alert, sight hearing smell,
Taste and touch to sympathise
And comprehend.

Conventional smiles, manifestations,
Motionless rebellions, endless
Laments, for overbearing
Bosses, small apartments, high rents.

Traffic jams, five weeks to rest,
Airlines mess, train fares, fines,
Political stagnation, dragging
Reluctant feet to vote, watch
News, deny
They ever went.

Food expensive, countryside
Too far, cultivation tiresome
Effort, lay to laze,

Puzzled, thought I was normal
But disconnect. Something must
Be weirdly wrong
With me,
Am I the only happy being left?
