    dotsThe Insignificant Business of Lifedots

    Today you will be disillusioned with the products of yesterday
    Your T shirt design of corporate slogans
    Will not fit the shoulders they are hanging on
    Today you will want what you saw
    On yesterdays television

    Today we ask you, where you will place your label
    Heavy metal
    Pop culture
    Left wing
    Black man
    White woman
    Political affiliation
    Which intellectual addiction
    Which one of our drugs are you on
    What bubble
    Which balloon
    Do you float your sense of self worth upon
    Do you have the money
    Do you need the cash
    What electrolyte white addition to your kitchen
    How big is your penis
    How small are your breasts
    Do you think you need plastic surgery
    Do you have any savings left
    Can we sell you
    Can we buy you
    Can we make addicts out of your children
    Are you racist
    Do you kiss the queens arse
    In what soap opera
    Are you hungry
    Do you need a new mobile phone
    Whose product of make up do you rely on

    Which cultural stereotype
    Will you fit yourself into
    What can we sell you
    In order to define the individuality
    We, the corporation sold you

    And the façade of your dreams
    And all the bright shiny things
    All the little pleasures of life
    Are the insignificant businesses of life
    All hide behind the camouflage
    With their hypocrisy of trinkets
    And the safety of comforts
    Proffered by request

    Sorry did someone say sweatshops

    Did someone mention third world

    Which oil tanker disaster are we speaking of

    Just who’s freedoms have been curtailed by this bill

    What do you mean; how do solve inflation, with more inflation

    Who do you think controls the nation

    Where do you think all the money comes from

    Today you will be disillusioned with the products of yesterday
    Your T shirt design of corporate slogans
    Will not fit the shoulders they are hanging on
    Today you will want what you saw
    On yesterdays television

    How is your cocoon today ?¿?¿
