Fired clay roofing tiles fired! Then walls tumble,
Consumers consumed, mall maladjusted
By special air delivery, busted
Businesses ignite, implode and crumble.
Strewn over fractured glass from blown shop fronts,
Manikins shattered, riven and disarmed,
A single stall standing charmed and unharmed
Amidst smoking rubble. Politicians’ punt
And everyone loses, even all those
Just taking orders, integrity
At knock down prices along with free
Offers of capitulation. War shows
The gloss of commerce and competition
Sells death on credit, simple addition.
