The Owl of Minerva

August 2021


What is it about society that disappoints you so much?

Oh, I don’t know
Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man
Even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children?
Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit
The world itself is just one big hoax
Or is it that we voted for this?
Not with our rigged elections,
But with our things, our property, our money

We all know why we do this
Not because ‘Hunger Games’ books make us happy
But because we want to be sedated
Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards
Fuck society
HOAX, Angerfist
