Since I failed to post a poem yesterday (it could have been a mental block at reaching the half way stage), I have posted two in today’s entry, albeit one is a haiku.
What drives the herds of humankind
towards the mouth of Mammon at weekends;
the lemming –like desire to plunge headfirst
with cash and cards towards consumer lures?
Fashion fads demand a common currency.
Week by week, by the weak-willed,
and it endures.
Just walk on by (Buy These Shoes!)
resist temptation, go and have a coffee –
(This is the one George Clooney would choose!)
Silence speaks volumes,
And volumes stand so silent
On library shelves.
