Lived the capitalist dream.

I woke up too late.

Hearing ticking clock.

Segregating precious time.

Immeasurable. 

Regimented seconds tick-tock.

Marking time, forever lost.

Children.

Adolescence.

Dominating parents,

get every penny out of them,

enslave.

Ask me your questions.

Scrutinise my behaviour.

Search my belongings.

Triggers for your explosion,

suspicion, spite, jealously
