Are we brain washed by society?
Advertisements, the media..causing a depressing reality
A reality where people are possessed with green eyes
Living life through a social media filter, selling lies
Created celebrations making us penniless
Nagging children left envious
Over worked parents..trying to keep up with the Jones
Double shifts, overtime..all for what? Who knows
What a child wants, over what a child needs..is it so hard to say no
Christmas, mothers, fathers and valentines day
Trapped in the cycle..Pressurised by what others say
Who wants to disappoint a loved one… Noone
But A day will come..
..a day will come when we will not succumb
Succumb to the cheap advertising tricks
Black Fridays, cyber Mondays
Drawn into spending without any plans to spend..what a clever trick.
