cars as big as bars

we love our greed

our hoarding and whoring

we construct social classes

the gourmands ravishing

chins, bare or bearded, dripping

rain-drops of wine and blood

all of our western excess and wastes

our all you can eat buffets

never empty gallon jugs of fizzy drinks

mdma on bar tops and refills of methadone

gaggles of edacious elites forever feasting

the are gaunt and ghostly, transparent

in constant need of maintenance and assurance

while the poor waste away
