Value

Just wait until they find out, the true value of Facebook and snapchat like things.

All they have to sell is consumption, the goal of which seems to be the destruction of the natural world.

What a ignominious goal for humanity, to worship growth until we run out.

As Plato said, they see but the shadows of things, not the things themselves.

On the News

Today we were told the news
As it happened
And when more happened
They told us the news again

At the current rate of news
the energy runs out quite soon
A quick flash in the Pan of concern
replaced by a few murders

Car accidents consumed the next day
And traffic troubles when
Quite a few hours afterwards
A child was run over

Consumption was rife
And so was extinction
Their quid pro quo relationship
left out of the news

Facts aside
sacrificed to entertainment
The truth
starts making the news
