Shed the Shell

If your identification
Based upon possessions
You'll be facing a regression 
Relating to inner essence

An extension of self maybe
But parading gucci sweaters? prada dresses?
Versace faux leather
Whatever you call expression?

If that's how you reflect yourself
With a projected hubris
You've consumed yourself with
This delusion of consumerism

Assuming you've got something
Beneath the costume
The clown suit, you've become a clown
Ronald Mcdoonald

A prop of corporate ruin
Cultural skew of wholesome values
They trash values
Have to dig deep through refuse

Landfill, to find what really fills
You up with substance
Instead of substance filling up at max
Suffering succotash you'll suffer fast

Upperclass habits
Can be traded for the basics
Of practicing daily gratitude
Of our integral human nature
