Conspicuous Consumption: Life on Sale
by Prof. Siva Prasad Peddi
Bookmark and Share
 

Woke up to see
Over a cup of tea
An indefinite strike
Over the price hike

It is open from seven
That earthly heaven
Straight took my car
And drove that far

The Super Mall
Will have it all
Everything is cheap
If you buy in heap

Captions they install
In big caps on the mall
 “Is it possible to sell?”
“Believe or go to hell”

All bulk purchase offers
The greatest of puzzlers
Never ever heard till now
Then, why strike to show?

In bulk you buy, it’s so cheap
If you buy one, hike is steep
Bought everything in dozens
Not only me, all other civilians

Can you consume all the purchase?
No, use some and rest in garbage
To store, the chances are so feeble
Expiry date, is clear on every label

To save very little now
Lot of money we blow
Actually, one or two is the need
Forcibly, all the rest you carried

Returned home to see
The ‘Flash News’ on TV
“The strike is called off”
By the all party staff

There was a compromise
Between cat and mouse
It’s the people who lose
After this insulting abuse

Trick by the Mall owners
They are the true sinners
To meet their investment
They went to this extent

They created this entire crisis
Managing a false strike notice
To create a temporary scare
Oh! Innocent, please beware
