! ! A Sad Tale Of Consumerism - Poem by Michael Shepherd

I was born poor uneducated trailer trash;
worked myself up by my own efforts;
now I'm rich; but still inside, feel poor...

so last week, I celebrated wealth -
bought my first $20,000 Cartier watch...

now everyone who sees it, laughs...
I wonder why?

    Sorry Michael,
    You feel
    So at sea.
    For you see
    Where you're born
    Is of no concern.
    Sadly your parents
    May have lacked dollars and cents
    But money's absence
    Doesn't make
    One a 'fake'.

    Like the watch
    That is your latest catch,
    Adorning your arm
    But to others it warns
    That here stands
    What looks like a man
    But instead is just
    One who lust
    For recognition
    (His only ambition.)

    Bill come to mind.

    I just bought a £3 watch in the Superdrug sale. It's pink. And everyone who sees it will laugh. Strictly speaking though it wasn't a celebration of wealth, more a matter of a need to be able to tell the time. t x (Report) Reply
