Worth The Price

In a world where being smart

Will make you mistrusted,

Where telling the truth

Makes one seem maladjusted,

Where showing compassion

Invites social scorn,

Where condemned are the happy

And praised the forlorn,

Where the vicious are wealthy

And the meek can’t inherit,

Where you’re judged by one’s look

And not by one’s merit,

I hope you’re condemned

To what’s nearly infinite

So when the world becomes worthy

You’ll still fit within it.
