Exclusivity versus Humanity

Exclusivity Haikus


1. Exclusivity/
On an industrial scale:/
An oxymoron/

2. The more”luxury”/
That we buy, use, want, or sell/
Cheapens all our lives/

3. “Luxury” relies/
On our social avarice/
And “fake” distinction/

4. If there is a G_d/
“He” must be so disgusted/
By our love of “things*”/
#haiku *stuff

5. We covet these things/
To embellish our status/
Before other “men”/

6. These “Gucci-fig-leafs”
Hide the human nakedness/
Of our basic needs/

7. We hide addictions/
To food and love to obscure/
Our humanity/
