Affluenza is the new affliction.
It is a fact, not fiction.
Everyone has increased his pace
To join the rat race.
Credit cards and banks offer loans
On the telephone.
Car, home on EMI
At your earliest you must buy.
Malls everyday multiply
It’s a question of demand and supply.
24/7 advertising blitz,
Decisions makers are the kids.
A very dear friend
In a moment of weakness confessed,
Retail therapy is worth a try
When low, it gives a high.
With life style diseases young are down,
Lament doctors with a frown.
The only cure is to simplify,
If at a ripe old age you want to die.
