“More, more, MORE!” whines the voice inside your head
Your id’s become your identity,
instant gratification thy middle name.
Every vein pulsating with greed
Lusting evermore for the latest, the coolest, the best
For thy passion of the day, the hour, the minute, the second.
Satiation is the scapegoat;
Disguise consumerism as self-care
As you embark on another reckless shopping spree,
flimsy paycheck at thy mercy.
Liquid envy drip-drip-dripping into your eyes
Eyes glazed over, love at first sight
Love at every click of a button
Love around every corner
Love is a $ sign.
Frailty, thy name is greed
Greed, thy name is human.
