Read All About It

Roll up
Roll up
To the greatest show on earth
You can read all about it
Within our folds
Sell your soul with your
Clammy pennies
Thumb the corners
Pick over the centres
Mark your
Saves for later
Look up the skirts
Or the noses
Check out the roots
And the pits
The weight gains
Or loss
The marriages
Or divorce
The sex
Or the celibacy
Look for the move
Away from
The “norm”
Point
And laugh
Sneer
And share
Snipe and click
Click
Clickety-click
Judge
Fuel the future
With your onward shares
And tomorrow’s waste
Judge and ridicule
Safe in the knowledge
That you aid and abet
Judge
Safe from the cameras
Judge
Safe from a collective hate
An individual and nationwide
Judge
And
Jury
