Bought and Sold

It seems that anything can be bought and sold these days,
olympic torches traded on ebay,
access to ministers, to pull the strings,
Everything can be bought and sold.
Selling sordid stories,
fake and tarnished glories,
constantly craving the glint of gold,
Everything can be bought and sold.
selling your honour, selling yourself,
to be picked up from any shelf.
Ideals worth less than paper and gold,
it seems everything can be bought and sold.

One thought on “Bought and Sold

    People today know the price of everything but the value of nothing.Hard times & insecurity breeds avarice.
