Madness

Filed under: Poetry — by Zuhair @ 4:20 pm

10 for a movie.
A movie everyday.
11 for an outfit
because everyone has it anyway.

Madness.
That’s what it is.
While a child goes hungry,
you spend on this.

If you value colored paper
so very little,
give away some of it
and sacrifice the sparkle.

Madness.
That’s what it is.
While a mother dies somewhere
you spend on this.

13 on a pair of shoes
because they glitter.
Mine cost 2
and they serve me better.

Madness.
That’s what it is.
While disease is out of control
You make one out of this.
