Contradictions – Part Two

By Bernie Bell

BUY THIS!  BUY THIS!  BUY THAT!

TRY THIS!  TRY THIS!  TRY THAT!

DO THIS!  DO THIS!  DO THAT!

I  WON’T!

I won’t buy a massive telly

I won’t pay £300 for a gizmo

That jiggles my legs about.

And I WON’T have a holiday

On a massive Cruise Liner.

WHY?

There’s Covid, and a Cost of Living Crisis

Though the Ad-men and the Money-men

Want us to act otherwise

Contradictions.

Extreme wealth.

Extreme poverty.

In one land.

Contradictions.

Stepping back in time.

We need to seek balance.
