The Waste of the Progress

“Thy Kingdom Come” by Chester Arnold (1999)

The Waste of the Progress

While shelf life gets shorter and fashions rotate,
Consumption is a skipping rope to leap over a payroll date.
Acquire your duds, use and throw them away…
The Progress rolls down a slope anyway.
                                                                         
                                                                          (by Oleg Komlik)
