The Wasteland circa 2022: Poet’s Corner

Mark Abell, Contributing Writer

Poem by Mr. Mark Abell

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation

It looks as if we’ve got ourselves a situation

Of precipitous cultural degeneration

Opiates are the opiates of the masses

So go and find yourself another interest besides Pinterest

Write yourself another story

By taking in the glory of the natural world
