As Seen On The Web

The first advertisement is about a bear,
malnourished, neglected, caged
as a tourist attraction.

Help them, the ad pleads.

The second advertisement shows a dog,
a terrier I think, wet, no fur on it’s feet.
Life is hard on the streets, it says.

Help them, the ad pleads.

The next advertisement is for Nordstrom’s.
It urges me to buy the latest fashions
from Versace, Dolce & Gabna and others.

Buy now, the ad pleads.

There is something wrong with us.
