We’re showing every sign
of a species in decline
denying the divine
we keep on building,

and thus we’ve set the stage
for a truly dismal age
where we caper in the cage
that we’ve been gilding;

if we were less concerned
with the items that we’ve earned
perhaps it could be turned
around for better

and once the captive see
our spirits are the key
we may at last be free
from every fetter.

Perhaps it could
Although many would
Rather sit and build up their crap
Like some hoarding chap

Nice poem but, did I miss the neologisms?

Nothing new presented just called for 8-D

Indeed---our spirits are the key.

This is just great. Simple, unvarnished truth - there's got to be a place for it!

i took from this lovely poem--our need to be free, while still connected
