Showing my age, lol.

Pinball Sense

People bounce about
Like balls in a pinball machine
Trying to hit the jackpot
And materialize their dream
Flippers flapping madly
Lights flashing all around
Noises blaring in their ears
Eyes always turned down
They never seem to click
That the game is contrived
Keep putting your money in
Or your senses get deprived
