I’m wondering if I have found my way,
Or have I been following a false trail?
In either case, I wonder if I have a say?
Am I controlled by the minions of retail?
They are further down the food change,
Still, they have more influence than me.
Give them even more power if I’m vain.
Help me someone, please hear my plea.
Don’t begrudge them their higher place,
A mere cog in our commerce machine.
We must smash it, leaving nary a trace,
Totally rewriting our last act and scene.
Gone before we can change it, I fear.
Except for the changes I make in me.
Talk to all and sundry, hope they hear,
Never mind, it will be what it must be.
