Empty Pleasures

such empty pleasures
are merely a distraction  
from the awful truth

Author's Note
Written the night before last in a very cynical state of mind. I post a lot of haiku/senryu... heh.

I tried my best to trace this photo back to its original source, but I was unable to figure it out. Since it's not my photo, I figured I better clarify that for copyright purposes; I don't want to take credit for something that's not mine.
