Without Commercials - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Without commercials, they seem to think
We wouldn’t know what drinks to drink
We wouldn’t know what cars to drive
They don’t believe we could survive

Without commercials, they seem to think
We would all be out of sync
What brands to buy, we wouldn’t know
They seem to think our thinking’s slow

How would we know just what to buy
Which airline to fly when flying high
What paste to use when teeth need brushing
What rouge to buy when cheeks need blushing

Yet, I remember life without T V
We did just fine, it seems to me
We knew just how and where to go
Without commercials to tell us so

    the pure truth
    of
    looking inward
    deeply
    and thus
    understanding
    how to live
    not needing insideous
    incessant suggestions
    on how to
    drink a glass of water
    fine work
