Cardboard Houses


A Short Poem On Living Inside Walls
We enclose ourselves in cardboard houses,
Separate from the land around us,
Fixating on moving boxes.
Indoors we sit and compare our lives.
Neighbours rustle windows, curtains
Keeping up with the Jones’s
Created by a mass media of our own making.
