Existential Anesthesia

Disconnect from the world

Virtual reality is here

How many minds will it trap?

What do you have to fear?

Living in an alternate environment

The Metaverse provides the escape

Another hit of dopamine

What will we aspire to create?

If we can’t solve problems in the real world

Pretending we can won’t change

Enhancing a romanticized virtual world

Only invites us to estrange

Beware you children of technology

Beware you people of mirth

Do not lose yourselves in frivolity

Reclaim your own self worth
