21st Century Trade


Cheap values, expensive goods
and the thin line is drawn
where values and possessions meet.

A day's dime, for a night's round
and in a night lodge,
my virginity is lost

Fame for my sweet body
and in your video, i' ll appear naked
Today's entertainment!

Jets, guns, and artillery...
politics by other means
and my people will sleep hungry

The divorce:
and i' ll take my share
in the ruins of a happy family.

Coming to the end, we are satisfied
The end of our hope, faith and love.
Sad to leave, happy to live...
in the 21st century trade.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
