Shoe Store

 

Row upon row
of shoes, manufactured
by Asian youngsters
scratching a living
from western longings
for cheap footwear,
easily discarded as
fashions constantly fade.
Marriage of design and technology
intended to have consumers
part with their hard earned cash to
maintain the flow of capital
necessary to enable an affluent lifestyle.
Taking everything for granted,
devoid of caring about Asians
toiling beneath hot roofs
to provide for a better future
that looms on a smog laden horizon.
