Is reality really better?
I feared becoming simulated
But the tumor promised to take me out
If there’s no choice, choose what’s left
So how’s life on the sim side?
Food never tasted this good
Covid had killed my taste
Now I salivate ceaselessly
For me fashion meant aspiration
I admired my virtual Kardashian dresses
Now they fit and feel just right
In my real life sex was finished
Now I’m ravishing and ravished
Who knew bondage aided bonding?
Coupling with ETs can explode your mind
And then they’ll buy you a new one
Drawbacks – tax rises are terrifying
At this rate I’ll need a job or
Let my image resolution decline
And sim-life’s a bastard when electricity fails
Dread, panic, asphyxiation
Can’t you real folks do anything right?
But I do love life this way
No thought police, no health insurance
I’ve been rich, I’ve been poor
Simulated is much better
