The one half-brick for the load-bearing column;
the trash-can lid for the perilous slalom;
the sugar-shack shake for the slow-release burn;
the uninspired bureaucrat’s leadership turn.
For surveillance techniques, let’s make standardized tests;
for tasty ingredients: breed-slaughter pests;
for our waste, let us haste to outpace every place
–such a pity: “the city” does an unwitty ditty
to attract corporate dumps; un-willed citizens slump.
Predict products’ senescence with planned obsolescence
(if it falls apart fast, it increases our cash).
