* Possessions Devalued - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Consumerism is childish...

Big Bucks. Big Bucks. Big Bucks. Spent.
More Toys. More Toys. More Toys. More...

For little Girls and Boys.
Who never grew up.

To learn the value of sharing.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written in April 1995 on the 20.4.1995.
This poem was written within the confines and goals of my early Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light) attempts and expectations.
I cannot write the exact date this poem was written, several folders of my poems from this era were stolen from the so called Art Hotel in Westport New Zealand, when we were moving from there to Pakington House in Westport, during those homeless days of two years with the four of us mostly living in one room accommodation. It will be difficult to rewrite some poems from draft notes, but we will try, luckily the next four poems I am about to post had a dateless typed copy. It is the nature of a thief to steal, it is the nature of artists to produce, and those who would nurture to give freely.
