Caveat Emptor


They want you to believe
what they’re selling won’t kill you,
but the truth is everywhere:
overcrowded cardiac units,
dialysis overload, car crashes
on every corner.
………………………………..They use

the glossiest paints and the shiniest
polishes; craft the slickest jingles,
the catchiest slogans, and offer
the biggest discounts imaginable.
But the unalterable facts remain:
swill remains swill; blind gluttony
and greed continue unabated.
