'Look at Me', so self absorbed in outward looks and latest fashion.
With disregard for inner peace, selfless thought, and kind compassion.
Piercing ears, with holes so big they look like they're starting to melt.
Trousers about our knees; showing off pants, clearly in need of a belt.

Cheap plasticΒ toys bought without thought, of which so quickly we tire,
Relationship failing to last without love and once all consuming desire.
Throw away gadgets and electronic connections, with all  life's worth we trust.
But when they are broken, will never be fixed; just casually tossed, left to rot, and rust.

Mealtime no longer a social or family affair, at a table with fork and knife,
Check-in's a must so 'friends' will know that you're having a really great life .
No prints of family or holiday snaps and childhood memories that last,
It's all about selfies, and sharing on line with 'friends' that human connection bypassed.
