Irony Man

As the depression overwhelms,
his ironies are out in the open

his social credit score drops,
though by just one point, it’s a great loss

suddenly he’s the weakest in the chain,
which instead implies that he’ll remain longer in the cage

this cage where the imagination needs research,
and it must not challenge the real notions

those notions which are rather blatant imaginations,
decided by a few, because rest are just blind

that blindness, where does it come from?
he’s blind to the fact that it’s the vision that infects from the outside

he splashes water on his face,
thinking that would wash these thoughts away

and so they do, they disappear,
no thanks to the water but a sound
of notification from his alter ego
