Consumed, #2

We are consumed by
want, by greed.
Consuming has become
the yardstick
to measure our shiny, plastic
success.
We make more
to consume more,
until we find someone
who will make more for less.
Then we consume that
but no longer
produce.

We forgot the first word
in GNP is
gross
and consumption
is a sickness.

 

Today is Amazon Prime day. Yay consumerism.
