    Frugal Favour


    Given nothing more than the basics
    Just a doormat
    For their feet
    Nothing more than the rudimentary
    Equipment of survival
    The simple things
    With their basic built in redundancies

    Just the basics
    Is all you need
    A doormat for their enjoyment
    And once in a while to afford the luxury
    Brand new cars, burgers and five blade razors

    Just the basics is all we need
    Surprising how far this frugal favour
    Can stretch

    Living in the plush is what they need
    To enjoy someone else’s poverty
    While their belly full belches
    For the hungry

    Just the basics
    Just a doormat
    So there is somewhere to wipe their feet
    So much detritus
    To wipe off their boots

    It still amazes me
    How the rich can sleep
    Knowing there is a child somewhere
    Who did not eat today

    Just the basics
    Is all they need
    And it is surprising how far
    We are expected
    To stretch them

    Born with a tin opener
    Tossed a few scraps
    From the great grand table of other lives
    Who silver spoon fed wallow in the happy mud bath of pigs
    Satisfying the gorging
    On the disease of wealth

    Just the basics
    Just a doormat
    And every accoutrement of a perfect life
    Can be measured and counted by
    Our slavery to them

    Still we love to own them

    A tomato
    A Yacht
    Scrap gold
    For a holiday
    A house
    An Igloo
    A Howitzer
    A bow and arrow
    Water
    Steak
    And rotting fish
    Hair colour product
    Medicine
    Hangover
    Incurable disease
    T.V
    A mobile phone
    A camp fire
    Empty fridge
    Super market
    A sports car
    Feet
    Rock star
    Busker
    Boiled potato
    Caviar

    Segregation
    Wealth
    Unity
    Poverty
