The Dangers of Advertisments


They both just sat there.
Staring at the ads.
Over and over they came.
Hour after hour.  Days, weeks, months...
Into her mind they went;
Steadily eroding his free will.

They showed her she was ugly;
he too, not sexy enough - a loser without IT.
Create the problem; sell the solution.

They told them IT would make them happy.
Pick a problem; sell IT as the solution.

So at decision time, in the isle,
Her free will reduced, influenced, bent;
He reached for IT.
They made her do it.

A week later.  Are they happy?
No.
Are they happy?
No.
