I’m a liar. So are you.
Is anything you’ve told me true?
Can you believe a word I say?
D’you ever listen, anyway? ...
There she is, at the spot where first we met,
In that whimsical haunt on the Internet.
She’s the distant desire that I can’t forget.
She’s my tear-stained pillow and my deep regret.
Blue Monday is here, the media says:
A day of despondence and gloom.
But really it’s only a marketing ploy
To get us to spend and consume ...
She greets me – a flash of her counterfeit grin:
Expression without any feeling within.
The motion excessive, the timing all wrong;
Eyes betray thought where no care could belong ...
A tyrant Saudi king dies
And we fly the flags half-mast,
Despite their human rights abuses,
Now and recent past ...
How nice of you to publish
Your thoughts on everything.
Such well-informed opinions –
A wit and wisdom spring ...
Just one percent of people
Own half of global wealth.
They keep their fortunes tucked away
With tax-evading stealth ...
You want that brand new gadget
And you crave the latest gear,
Despite the fact it’s over-priced
And ‘out’ within a year ...
Peekaboo! They’re watching you.
The streets have eyes, the walls have ears.
They track and log your every move.
They own your hopes, they craft your fears ...
