Anything For A Buck

In our “anything for a buck” society
We’re off the path of sane sobriety
To satisfy our dollar quest
We’ve lionized the plastic breast

The macho “ever-ready” need of males
That they must always be has hard as nails
Fills the wallets of drug providers
And all those C E O insiders

We’ve all been brainwashed, but enough’s enough
Why can’t we join together to fight their stuff
They’ve demonized us with their thought controls
We’ve lost true values, and sold our souls

What can I say? Right up my street this one and i learned a new word too "lionized"! ? Certainly had me baffled that phrase. :-)

I certainly to that it would be good if we all got together to remind them it is the quality of life that we are interested in not quantity. The problem is who would pay for their self-indulgent largesse, if we all started to work to live instead of living to work.

Great work you guys :-)

So Stan how right you are in your poem!

It's fall and that means deer season is approaching. Here in Missouri people go deer crazy, especially over a prize buck. From the title of your poem I thought you were one of the those people ; )


...and that just about sums it all up! The science of nurturing greed has long ago gained critical mass!
Behind you all the way here, Stan
all ds best, Nick.
