What more do we need?
We have the full set NOW -
toys, games, lamps, motors,
cards and electronic rooftops
and battery driven ear-pluckers,
navel-dusters and gadgets
to clean the things we need no gadgets for,
unless we have the things and the gadgets
we need for the things that need cleaning
With the other gadgets.
Just in the same way that we need
Money to get the money we use to get
more money to get more money
to go more faster, ever and ever
fasterer and fasterer to spin dervishly
whirling out our worldigig
world is our world
maniac at the wheel,
foot on the floor, hand on the throttle.
Choking the weak,
worlding away into the dark,
the dark down between the stars, the dark empty,
With our final blaze, the one spark
Like a penny banger down a mineshaft;
when we’ve whirled
till the world
Go. . . . .
