A new flag the dollar.
Pay tax, don't holler.
Drink the worry away.
Limos ride like Sherman tanks.
GOLD fenders - no thanks.
Playboy AIDS bunny's for sale.
Super HERO - on line at the bank.
No problem - just call RAMBO.
Churches fallen into ruins.
Selling JESUS images as cartoons.
After school homework makes us three.
Castle corporations rule the sea's.
Yet, they can't tie a shoe.
MEGA-SUPERMALLS credit-card max out.
Kids can't read, just drop out.
LID on the corner-just shout.
Newspaper boy delivers porn.
Politicians yell with dollar scorns.
Back then down on the farm.
METH factory now - inject into arm.
Chemical food will make you right.
Cancer tumor - out of sight.
ALL FOR SELF - me only.
Maybe the great experiment got phony

Who was that Mass'd man?

( Posted by: ogg [Member] On: February 24, 2008 )

very fire and brimstone… captures the chaos hype and headache of mass marketed consumer driven America well, where everything has a price but nobody counts the cost or realises the true worth of anything… a bleak vision, true, but in many ways dispiritingly accurate…

do think though that showy religious hysteria and moral panic has its part to play in this mess, wonder if all those telly evangelists or rabid members of the Christian right are even remotely acquainted with spirituality in any real sense?

Let's do lunch -
My sentiments exactly. If we all keep writing, maybe we can help straighten out this mess. [aside]Thanks for commenting on my poem. Yours is my first and only so far.

Very nice
This describes my sentiments very well, and I think a lot of other people's as well. But if everyone agrees with this, how is all this corporate corruption, mass marketed consumer America, even existing? Somebody is buying--and not just one. A lot of people buy into Wal-martAmerica. After all, everyone has to shop somewhere, and it's human nature to always want the bigger and better things, to always have something better than your neighbor. More, more, more, is the order of the day, and we can't fix it until we can fix human nature. I just wish everyone could stop the huge corporations and globalization of the economy. It's killing individuality and creativity, killing the little business owner, killing culture and tradition in favor of six-lane highways, Super Wal-Marts, and smog. I hope I'll get to see a world where my children will never have to know those things, but somehow I doubt it. They seem unstoppable, and people seem to like the convenience it provides enough to override the bad things.
Yergh, I just wrote way too much. Your poem really got me thinking--that's always a good thing. Thanks for posting.

very nice:reply
Thanks for the comment, it has sincerity. Though mans nature goes to the cave, then castle, now corperations. Inside they drink wine outside they pick the grapes. From being paid to SLAVERY on some ladder, called system [of the modern age]. 2000bc +.
