What Not to Want
People want things that don’t make them happy
Variations of the same old story.
The box in the room says this or that solves all problems
Corporations exploit the same old story.
Neighbor sees neighbor with something neighbor doesn’t have
The formation of the same old story.
Companies fit smells with things that should have them,
The temptation – the same old story.
The profits carry them over until the next big idea
Gestation of the same old story.
Been around since the beginning of time
Duration of the same old story.
Philosophers enlighten the ignorant masses
Negation of the same old story
The new ads pretend money doesn’t buy happiness
Mutation of the same old story.
I still think that car will make me happy.
Affirmation of the same old story.
