Buyer Remorse


You can't keep,
The people convinced...
They can live their lives without all the 'stuff'.
Oh no you can't keep,
The people convinced...
Living basically is not that tough.

Since buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A teaching taught and accepted.
With a rush to feel indepted.

Buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A teaching taught to accept,
Alone at home to groan.

No you can't keep,
The people convinced...
Living basically is not that tough.
Oh no you can't keep,
The people convinced...
They can live their lives with alot less 'stuff'.

Since buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A teaching taught and accepted.
With a getting in debt to regret.

And...
A buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A feeling one wants to own.
Alone to groan in one's home.

Yes a buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A teaching taught,
To live.
Who can escape this fate?

A buyer remorse,
Is of course...
A teaching taught,
To live.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
