White waves spread throughout the city, originating from the central area.
People are stumbling, they suffer; getting rich, powerful.
Silver tea sets; hoarding within the home – feeling empty.
Chasing the substance, while needing substance.
Learning becomes knowledge; liquor becomes empty, pipe hot, their dreams sizzling.
Forever, an empty space. The human desires;
But dreams die, moments are lived but not appreciated.
Everything has value, but remains valueless.
The tide forms around the city; lives become meaningless;
like the possessions they own; and the lives they live.
