Stroke My Ego

I’m going to write this one for me,
To stroke my ego, to set me free,
My self-image is the main contender,
Here in the world of splendour,
Of contests and clashes,
Of beauty and plastic,
Of landfill, and pollution,
Of hunger and despair,
Yachts and jet planes,
Silver screens and celebrity gossips,
Refugees and politics,
Broken promises and sensationalism,
News stories covered by monkeys in suits,
Bleeding with untruths,
I’ll turn my back, hide away,
I have so much to do and say,
Things to buy,
People to see,
So much to do,
See, it’s all about me.
