Isn’t it ironic

Isn’t it ironic (sorry Alanis)
That our culture (celebrities and voyeurs)

Preach and purport to endorse
Self- reliance and esteem

Whilst stealing it from us
Through images and examples

Criticising shallowness
Whilst preventing depth

Moralising about fashion
Whilst creating its tunnel vision

Panicking about perverts
Whilst preparing the bait

Crying fouls and corruption
But still rewarding it

Raising the age of consent
And abandoning them to their fate

Protecting too much but
Still stealing their innocence

Preaching family values
But not leading by example

Our society complains about
The antics of their inheritors

As if they had no hand
In making it what it is

Probably too late to change
But maybe we can slow down
