Moral Superiority – Written Monday 28th June 2010 (Aged 35)

Moral Superiority

moral superiority
comes from false consciousness
that idea,
that one way of life –
is more right than another
that says a lot about life
it says something about father and mother
have we not done well people say
look at all the things we have done
but just like the gameshow,
look at what we could have won
if the whole is worth much more
how is it that i can never add the sum

James Garratt – Monday 28th June 2010
