The Changing Consensus Trance

One reason we live in a trance
Is to ignore our low social stance,
To not see the borders
Of our pecking orders,
To not even give that a glance.

But in times of great social change,
We enlarge our insightful range;
The way we now live
Is beginning to give,
And starting to look somewhat strange.

We don’t know our rank will advance
When the new world the old one supplants;
The new chain of command
Might not be what we planned
In the new-formed consensus trance.
