As I stare into your featureless face, I wonder
Is satisfaction an acceptance of gracious defeat?
A state of vacancy beyond my reach?
The passing second slips.
Soon, out of grasp.
Gnawing, it claws.
So I stand and I stare and I think and I ponder
Are we all dressing up,
Disguising naked self worth?
I swig from the promises of my £4 coffee cup.
Make me forever alive to tomorrow's prize!
ALL NEW! Denial cheap and in fashion.
And I remain the perfect model.
“An inelastic mind entwined in plastic....”
So who's the dummy now?
What is a Community Champion?
