everything feigned

When did the world turn artificial,
where every structure is just a façade?
Our foundations aren’t stone,
but a cultured veneer.
Our marble is printed.
All our buildings are fraud.

When did the world turn artificial,
where plastic composes the treasures we make?
The gold is just paint on
acrylic injections.
Our gemstones are molded.
Our jewelry is fake.

When did the world turn artificial,
where food is from factory not from a field?
Our flavors: impostors
and chemical posers.
Reality poisoned
for profit and yield.

When did the world turn artificial,
where cheap is the cost of convenience gained?
There’s patience for nothing
and speed is the measure.
The quality’s forfeit,
and everything’s feigned.
