Branded Illusions


The make believe world of
Snobs that define our tastes
A mockery of what satiates us
Silent apartheid of those who belong
And who believe they ruled all along

A dilemma of French cuisine or an
Italian crocodile or studded London hand bag
Moments when toil for future ceases
Moments when life beyond their walls
Or any empathy of lives outside forever decreases

Deplore can the infernal I
A ratrace of aping the eternal mimics
In world of fake smiles
Of tagged expensive lies
Hollow sounds of make believe riches
Pain for the simple eyes

Poem of the Day

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
