Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Progress? Really?
 




Downhill spirals,
human values,
gurgle in silent token protest
...down the drain,
clockwise
or anti-clockwise direction,
determined
by hemisphere,
particles pulled
in the under-tow.

Fragmented decency,
obliterated modesty,
shredded innocence,
eradicated honesty,
herniated trust

vile profanity.

Faster...
even faster,
fed by
fabricated falsehoods,
fantasized fortunes.


And all
in the name
of glorious progress?
