I've sat here for 21 years 
Watching all this go by 
People say things cliché 
With pretension in their eye 
I'm tired of hearing, everyday, what life is all about 
Reality is getting boring, let's tune in and drop out

Have you heard the one 
About the killer and the priest?
One blesses people with less and less
And one is just a thief 
In "somewhere else" my mind is broken down 
Reality is getting boring yet still its name resounds 

There's stories everywhere you go
And all of them the same 
Reductive plots and happy endings 
Just under another name 
I'm quiet as I sit and listen to what they all say 
Reality is getting boring, maybe I'll revisit it some other day

GREAT poem, love it! Everything about this is awesome, and what caught my eye: I just love how you semi-repeated the last line, combined with such a well-constructed rhyme scheme, the whole poem just flows so smooth and pretty. And it's absolutely true; even today's "individual heroes" and keyboard warriors sound exactly the same. Combined with Hollywood, mainstream media, politicians; all the same, nothing changes, boring!

Excellent work, friend! :)
