Anorexic Society – Written Friday 1st October 1999 (Aged 24)

Anorexic Society

it is an anorexic society
so thin through its lack of humanity
it breeds anorexic children
with anorexic confidence
fed a diet of media hype
sex and stereotypes
ideals that could never exist
ideals that could never be
that’s why we have anorexic children
in an anorexic society
with anorexic girls in their teens
sold a million things
sold and told about impossible dreams
but who takes responsibility
for this anorexic society
not the magazines and the media
who always play their part
not the parents who do not parent
because will not or cannot
it is anorexic society
breeding anorexic children
with anorexic confidence
as a child you need confidence
god know, it is difficult as you get older
to try and make sense
but i see total insanity
in this anorexic society




James Garratt – Friday 1st October 1999
