Chocolate Flake – Written Friday 27th February 2009 (Aged 34)

Chocolate Flake

is it true
has society crumbled
is it just another –
chocolate flake
if we care for each other
what has happened to the welfare state
sister or brother
there is no location of the brakes
it is true
has society sold out
the auction hammer
has finally come down
there is a lack of trees
as we start to look around
the gap between –
those who are rich and those who are poor
goes beyond ethics and morality –
and the application of law
it is true?

James Garratt – Friday 27th February 2009
