Attention cigarettes

Wll the buzzing in your pocket
Is pretty hard to ignore
You keep feeling
For fire behind the door

While the world is collapsing
Maybe it has always been
Was it easier to process
When you weren’t checking in

Every 15 minutes
Like you need a cigarette
Made of vies for your attention
That you’ll instantly regret

The living room’s an office
You sleep inside your desk
Everyday the work gets harder
And you care a little less

Because it’s hard to form a sentence
Let alone a paragraph
With everybody shouting
Let us out of here we’re trapped

You’ve got a head full of garbage
Like the news below the fold
Try this one weird trick
The doctors don’t want you to know

What if nothing ever happened
And you got over the fear
Would the forest even fall
If there was nobody to hear
