AugPoWriMo 2

Some of us think we won’t forget this year
As if nothing were more memorable
Than anything like expendable lives
Being called on to make a sacrifice
No one of any standing wants to make
So they make mail undeliverable
By enforcing these arbitrary rules
That regulate the planned obsolescence
Of all our most essential services
Incompetent in their evil designs
Let’s make them pay so that maybe this year
Will be memorable for the death of
Such a cynical ideology
As suffering that makes for great TV
