What has become of us?
Celebrities are the new gods,
(I’m not sure what we’re celebrating)
televisions are the new temples,
time and money spent on gossip magazines
and going to pop concerts waving our hands in the air
screaming for joy or shrieking with manic tears:
these are our new sacrifices;
Weapons of mass distraction.
