The Essence of Capitalism.

Consumerism.

Today we exist,
So we can work hard,
Earn money,
And buy more stuff.

Growth is needed,
So as time goes by,
We have to work harder,
Harder and harder,
So we can earn more money,
To buy more stuff.
More stuff.

Work and buy,
Work and buy,
All capitalists sing,
In life the most important thing,
Is for all to work and buy,
Work more,
Buy more.

But will our youth not cry,
And our way decry?
