Comments : Material Life

    by John Long

    I enjoyed this poem as it looks at Consumerism and Materialism from a different and fresh perspective. I particularly liked this verse as it encapsulates the meaning of the poem and at the same time is poignant but witty:

    the strange truth is,
    We think we need expenses to be happy.
    But what difference does the model of the car make,
    It still does the same job, with an engine and a brake.

    I absolutely love this, it`s a lot different than all of the other poems of yours that I have read, but still good nonetheless. I love reading poems about real world issues, and this was one of those poems where a reader can just get lost in what you are saying. Good job.
