Remembering ‘Soylent…’

Snap and then drool
with the vastly improved
brand new
cyanide capsule

available at selected outlets
for outcasts
ingrates
madmen and
inmates.

you may laugh but it’s coming
euthanasia will be phased in
and they will put our lights out,
in this example ‘our’
refers to
all of you called me and most
of me called you
some will slip through and
I bet it will be the rich,
(the ones who should be first in the ditch)
the politicians
solders and magicians
and the boys in the City
ain’t sitting so pretty
but those down in Petty France
lead us on a merry dance
up the garden path.

laugh until I cry and
then laugh until you die
buy
buy
try
new improved
today.
