Selling Waste Materialism Or Sacred Sanctity Life? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
beware distortion reflection mirrors
when living in a world of illusions
materialism sells materialistic ideals
which supposedly instantly bestow
paradise happiness contentment not woe
new possessions set our lives aglow
but sadly new possessions wither with time
computers crash new gets covered in grime
designed to break toys chime in their prime
are we trapped living in a world of pricy illusions?
is gadget life mass confusion with no cheap solutions?
need we appease ourselves with crap from shelves?
love peace compassion kindness
belief in sacred sanctity of life
is refusal to hurt hunt main kill
refusal to fight wars
these are solutions
to world confusions
to lust greed profit oil wars
to indifferent industrial earth rapes
to pollution destruction of environments
affirm life vote not yes vote no
humanity needs a different road to go
humanity needs to learn love to sow
