Bought and Sold

29 May

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.
