Mangled Mean(ings)

mangled meanings that passed themselves as
garbled sentences
spoken over a radio frequency
best described as an AM station
told frenzied listeners that
you must obey the sounds
and do nothing but consume

and consuming is all that you do
because you have to
if you didn’t consume food, or water, or air
you wouldn’t be there, or here, or anywhere
but what you don’t have to do is use
and by use, they mean abuse,
all that things that you consume

    Great poem considering how America is the toilet bowl for the worlds shit products. We do abuse ourselves with meaningless products but most people don’t see it that way. The food. The clothes. The energy we use… we abuse and destroy.
