Dead-vertise

Weathered light
From a million hoardings
Like old lovers
Awakens-
Streams of desire
And rivers of discontent

Green faces-
Under the hazy surfaces
Of trampled city streets
Stare at the spotless billboards
Advertising hopeless hopes
And dreamless dreams

A tortured silence
In the sterilized boardrooms
Speaks volumes-
About a globalized youth
Waiting in the wings
To rule the future
And save the (corporate) world

A total-
Subversion of the soul
To-
The coolest fad
Promoted-
By the latest ad

Associated facts
About benevolent companies
Doing good
By making profits
Bring to mind
A host of dictators
Fighting over branded® humanity™

Yes, it is certainly refreshing as a change. The deep anguish is deftly made out into a subtle and powerful satire. Such precise expressions and so accurate words! Your brevity is unbeatable, indeed.

oh yes
i find
tomes
of Dark Humour
streaming
screaming
out your voice-box
casting with ease
a mild impression
on my mind
