Consumption

Times are changing Mr. Dylan said
No turning back yesterday dead
Lives in the balance added Jackson Browne
Choice people have go up go down

Energy talent heartfelt desire
People need freedom and will to conspire
Nothing to lose no downside or risk
Embolden empower without a fist

Internal fighting demands cunning smarts
Find buried answers in golden hearts
Get beyond stories lies we’ve been told
Falsehoods deceptions not to be sold

Without stuff they sell we’re all ok
Leave junk on shelves to rot away
Don’t need sellers stories myths dreams
Heart minds expire without better memes

Know what to do what to think and say
No more false truths to stand in your way
No more false gods with guileless shame
Or naked emperors worthy of blame

How much of a consumer are you?

Do you buy stuff mindfully?

What about TV advertisement?
