Flashing lights

Bright colours

On the side of eye sight

Memorised logos

Unconsciously

Remembering

 

Everywhere you look

Subtly influencing

Desensitizing

Part of life

Always

 

No delete button

Watch them through

Ignore them

But still remember

 

Something new

Something cool

Something interesting

Something fun

But

Ultimately

Useless

 

Ultimately

They've taken over life

They're everywhere

Flashing

Spinning

Shining

Brightly

 

In the end

They're useless

Expensive

And accepted

 

No escape

In your head

Colourful

Beautiful

Attention grabbing

 

And these things

These

Flashing

Spinning

Shining brightly

Things

Are everywhere

 

And these things

These

Colourful

Beautiful

Attention grabbing

Things

Are unstoppable

 

Ultimately useless

Still

They are used

These

Things

 

These

Advertisements

These

Ads

Have the world in their grip

 

These

Advertisements

These

Ads

Have us in their grip

 

Are controlled

Tightly

By those

Who say they are better

 

But these

Advertisements

These

Ads

Brainwash us

Into accepting

This poem is about: 
Our world
