For those of us who lived and lost
and pissed and missed,
accursed we tossed
we fumbled and tumbled,
our lives embossed
procuring lust, hells bells it is just
a damn shame things turn dry as dust
and have such extravagant cost!

But these philosophies will inevitably fail to pierce
Wal*Mart shoppers’ thick-skulled craving fierce
on any given day
as they skitter away
on a vast oil-stained asphalt expanse
under ever-present surveillance cameras' glance,
dodging bubble-gum splotches,
cigarette butts,
and others’ flatus gas discharge
on the way
to purchasing cheap plastic Chinese imports.

But returns are easy; plastic dies quickly.
