A Sip of Vermouth

Why should I care ?
When all my needs seem to be rare 
The facts suddenly appear to be illusion 
Every day passes reveal another confusion 
Living this life becomes meaningless 
As it is full of idiocy, vulgarity and sadness 
Naively, I searched for the beauty of the soul 
Regardless to my comfort, my ideas and my goal
In childishness I thought I have found my utopia
Dreaming of a world where everybody has Atelophobia
However, all the dreams evaporate
When reality awakened me too late
Showing me the ugly truth
That my dream was a sip of vermouth
