Expose of Our Privilege – Written Thursday 16th April 2020 (Aged 45)

Expose of Our Privilege

this world today –
as we experience it –
is now an –
expose of our privilege
it is a stand up show
where the illusion –
of our reality
is the punchline –
to every joke,
every downpayment,
every loan,
and every repayment scheme
we bathed in aspiration
and not it finally comes clean
the realisation that we are slaves
in a economic hallucinogenic dream
and we did not arrive
without first,
know our destination
we have been on this expenses train
without consideration
this is a fly on the wall documentary
we are being humbled and then schooled
and it is elementary

James Garratt – Thursday 16th April 2020
