Everything is reflective
at the mall
consumer vanity
capitalistic insanity
a mirrored calamity
overpriced merchandise
who makes the $50 t-shirt?
who makes the plush princess puppies?
my conscience is riddled with guilt
I am the consumer
one of millions
eating away at the ozone
one stuffed animal at a time
typing poems on my Chinese made laptop
sharing it on my Chinese made iPhone
there is a good chance that you are reading this
on a device made in China
how can we look at ourselves
in these mirrors
without feeling slightly disgusted?
that is how I feel anyway
I feel like none of us really care
and that is sad
and does not bode well for the future
of this planet
