The Weight of Vanity – Written Sunday 28th January 2018 (Aged 43)

The Weight of Vanity

let society –
drown in its own vanity
do you think about capitalism
do you think –
that’s rich

let society crash –
holding a selfie stick
where no more is left
every ‘man’,
thinks he is losing space
ever woman
is weighed down by her, ‘make-up’
made up on her face
and if you are so sad
weighed down,
by fears that you will fail
the just watch everyone –
on the campaign trail

let society –
drown in its own vanity
take stock –
of your own profanity
the real ale and the real wine
they do nothing for sobriety




James Garratt – Sunday 28th January 2018
