    Consumption Society

    Purpose: We are bombarded with stuff to buy constantly everyday. Every year there are new innovations in tech, fashion, cars and homes and it can be a great deal to keep up with. This poem is a reflection on all that we have available to us and how much we enjoy as well as get caught up in it.
