Corrupt Commodity -by Robert Gardner

No lie is labelled ‘beautiful’
In the riverbeds of Mars,
But lies are labeled ‘precious’ now
By precious movie stars,
And propaganda pays the bill
In California shops,
From Paris down to Mexico,
From Harlem up to Watts,
From Maine to Polynesia,
To an imitation Sun,
Deception sells on E-bay
For a most amazing sum!
For prices you would not believe
Or even care to name,
But you’re the one who buys it all,
So you’re the one to blame.
