The Box

It was built to house a few
Individuals. It costs
Credits from banks to access,

Signed contracts of commitments.
Once in it, inhabitants
Naturally consider

And compare. Is this better
Than other boxes we’ve called
Our address, maybe our home?

Better in what ways? And worse
In what ways? Is it better
Than the boxes other folks

We know of consider home?
Better or worse than normal?
Is it fair that we live here?

Is this privilege? Is this
Shame? Is this the system’s fault?
The measure of our success?

What does this box mean? We sleep
And dream in this box, but why?
Each box fills up with questions.
