Dissatisfaction


Frustration, I am a prisoner
Consumption they are prisoners
I am a prisoner of frustration I
know not yet a purpose
They are prisoners of consumption
running around in the same free market circus
Why do they consume, will a new car allow
their self-esteem to bloom?
Why do I consume
for new knowledge, consciousness or
perhaps a new tune

The name of this passage is dissatisfaction,
discontent, my mind is bent
Disgruntlement is my concierge, as in my
frustration I know not despair
because I shall be spared the life of…
consumption

    This is good it reminds me of that one Ginsberg poem that talks about a guy's cock. I guess that's all of his poems but this one is really cocky. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
