You want that brand new gadget
And you crave the latest gear,
Despite the fact it’s over-priced
And ‘out’ within a year.
You want your neighbour’s sports car
And your best friend’s TV, too.
That stylish coat your colleague wore
Would look so good on you.
Rhymes Against Humanity
The poem ‘Cupidity’ features in Modern Madness, the new book by Ross Adamson.
This storming debut collection is both a masterclass in high-octane, high-precision rhyming verse and a timely, trenchant indictment of early 21st century society.
Modern Madness is vehement and rebellious, scintillating and streetwise, eloquent and insightful, and buzzing with expressive verve and poetic charm. Adamson fearlessly hits emotive topics head on: sometimes sharpshooting with a laser-guided dart to the heart; sometimes channeling a blazing powder keg of righteous anger.
This book exemplifies contemporary poetry at its piquant and polemic best: It is spirited, quotable, memorable, highly thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining throughout.
