A few weeks back we were emailed this poignant and provocative song which I would like to share with you all.
Why Pay Anything More by Derek Roche
… excess consumption is what we got
… everything feels the greed, there is still so much that we need
… garbage mountains block our view, packaging all that we buy new
when is this going to end?
… and still we keep buy, buy, buying till we bought everything on the shelf
and still we keep try, try, trying till we own more than one else
…Our Mother is suffering, she whispers her pain
Our Father is crying, His tears come down acid rain
… who is driving this consumer’s bust, don’t look now but I think it’s us
no one else to blame. what we are doing is insane
