I’m a consumer.
I consume the news, the views, the Fake stuff, the praying for you’s, the foibles of democracy, hypocrisy, tragedy.
I consume Netflix, binge drinks, hollow chick flicks, Japanese pop. lit. with rave reviews.
I consume the property owner dreams, the ageing Queen, the has-beens and the gossip of those I’ve never seen.
I consume the party mandates, the ‘jokes’ about rape, the double standards, the political correctness hazards and the dubious future of the UK.
I consume the banking liars, memes that pacify us, climate change deniers, the ocean plastic fighters facing an impending doom.
I consume the beauty ideals, today’s top deals, pictures that get you right in the feels and the lazy snowflake millenials.
I consume the “Put a ring on it” mantra, the high-waisted pants, the stay youthful forever, the pungent Sex Panther, sprayed with abandon.
I want to spit it out. Gag reflex.
But Wifi is a basic necessity. Like shelter. Or water. Always thirsty.
Stop. Use my own brain. Make my own name. Produce.
