He pays the price
For something nice
The price is that
The product asks
And yet
As though he's peering
Through a mask
It seems to him
Not too great
A task
Held within his
Hands at last

The imagery created by the word 'mask' demonstrates how often the 'ends' far outweigh the 'means' in importance and the individual is blind to the downfalls of any such 'means' . Could this poem be inspired by the fact the author just bought a Bon Iver ticket?
