Fog in the City of Lights

The fog was so thick in the city of lights
no one felt anything worthwhile any more;
it drifted in slowly 10,000 years thick,
choking life out of everything humble and small.

The fog was so thick in the city of lights
people scrambled to their homes, warm and safe
to watch mountains
and streams
and trees
and birds
and oceans
on their televisions
staring
and staring
but not looking at each other
or talking to each other
or touching each other
or anything with each other
except when complaining about the fog
and how it seemed to be getting thicker these days
and thicker
and thicker, not like the old days
when it was still safe to look through the fog
and you could look through the fog and see nature
and smell nature
and touch nature without being ashamed.

The fog was so thick in the city of lights
people choked on their minds and hated each other
and they hated each other because they hated themselves,
and all these people in the city of lights
were always disappointed with themselves and each other
and were always disappointed with their children's behavior
and were always disappointed with their parent's interference
and were always disappointed with their soul mate's growing older
and were always disappointed with their workmate's advancement
and were always disappointed with their best friend's new friendships
and were always disappointed with government and country,

but they never questioned their own way of thinking

until one day a little boy stood up and said,
"I've had enough of this hellish insanity!"
and everyone listened;

and absurdity scrambled back
to its original simplicity

and everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
