Wretched Debris

We are the drifting refuse,
the formerly wretched debris,
that has accepted our decay
with a humility reserved
for the insane or the deluded.

We do not suffer our fate,
but take pride in our condition,
that we are free of
the oppressive weight of
education and information.

We play our part, and do so proudly,
for it is only in our persistence
and ever-present resolve
that we can express
our misplaced defiance.

We are alive, and that is our purpose,
to fill in the spaces between
important people and serial killers,
that the backdrop of our society
is not lacking colorful characters…

… or joke punchlines.
