After Psalm 73

It is an illusion
ephemeral, a chimera
shimmering in the distance
a mirage, non-existent oasis,
a desert of celebrity
and notoriety, wealth
and possessions, position
and power and control
a desert
a wasteland
without a bang or a whimper
a conundrum
a contradiction
an illusion of familiarity
and the expected,
indoctrinated into wrapping security
around the neck
like a boa
