The Ideal of Less

a picture of the poem, written on a typewriter.

The ideal of less
at war with the want of new,
of better
Not realizing how much “new”
and “better” is just
words used as weapons
in the war.
Weapons wielded recklessly
to elicit false ideals,
to flush out the currency
and cover up the reality.
