UNIFORM DYSTOPIA

PRETTIFIED TROUGHS FOR CHOWING DOWN?

AN OASIS OF PLASTIC PALMS AND STUFFED CAMELS…

BECAUSE NOTHING DENOTES CONSUMPTION,

LIKE AN UNLIKELY JUXTAPOSITION,

OF SHOPPING WITH THE SAHARAN WATERING HOLE…

BUT ITS SO TRUE!

 

THE SHOPPING OPPORTUNITIES IN TOWNS AND CITIES

ARE DESERTS…

POUNDLAND PAUCITY AND THE WORKS WORKHOUSE,

SLAVISH DESIRES FOR BARGAINS AND BEST SELLER BOOKS,

KNOCKED DOWN TO ROCK BOTTOM PRICES,

SO YOU CAN DEVELOP DIABETES

ON DOUBLE DECKER CHOCOLATE BARS

THREE FOR A POUND…

AND CELEBRATE YOUR LACK OF LITERARY PRETENSIONS

BY BUYING THE LAST THREE VERSIONS OF

KATIE PRICE’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY.

 

WHAT BETTER THAN AN OASIS OF LIBERAL CAPITALISM,

OF KNOWING CONSUMERISM…

THE GOOD TYPE OF BUYING,

WHERE YOU EQUATE ASTONISHING EXPENDITURE,

WITH GOOD TASTE…

NOT JUST AN OVER-PRICED SANDWICH OF INDETERMINATE VINTAGE

BUT AN M & S SANDWICH OF CORONATION CHICKEN…

 

ARTISAN BAKERS OF SOUR-DOUGH BREAD,

SITUATED IN FAUX INDUSTRIAL SURROUNDS,

SO WE CAN PRETEND TO CARE

THAT THE FOOD WE EAT IS HOMOGENISED SHIT,

AND THE GROSSLY OVER-PRICED CLOTHES WE WEAR,

ARE IN FACT MANUFACTURED BY CHILDREN,

IN SWEATSHOPS FAR FAR AWAY…

WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED?

THAT THE EASTERN DELIGHTS OF THE PALM TREE PANACEA,

WAS A CRUEL MOCKERY OF SLAVE LABOUR

IN THE FAR EAST?

 

THIS WORLD, THIS ONE WORLD, THIS CORPORATE WORLD,

HAS LOST ITS SOUL…

IF IT EVER HAD A SOUL?

IF IT EVER HAD A SOUL,

IT WAS LOST WHEN EVERYTHING BECAME A COMMODITY,

WHICH COULD BE CAPITALISED…

 

SORRY WRONG MEETING.

 

DALE ‘M’
