This is not an advert!

I notice adverts everywhere
Its even on the clothes you wear
And still you smile so unaffected
Is all this anger misdirected?
Relate the logo on the t-shirt
Now you're just a walking advert
Do you really care who made it?
Sweatshop workers underpaid

This is not an advert

Pre-teen kids who get abused
For wearing nonspecific shoes
Anorexic suicidal women on the diet cycle
Men in cars that just look faster
As they crawl towards disaster
All the side effects of being little more than what we're seeing

This is not an advert

Trends and slogans
Cultural tokens
Of mass consumption
What's your function?
The epitome of anti-culture
Designer branding
Constant future plans for redesigning space
Every human has it's place
Desire consumes more to be free of addiction born of unmet needs
Supplied by signs that overfeed the cures for the dependency

This is not an advert

Please allow me to replicate you
I'll buy your clothes and neither love nore hate you
