The Billboards lie

‘Ah… you’re conservative?’
Asked with a sly grin
Almost a by-word
A slur
For backwardness
In a ‘forward’ society

Oh God help us!
If in fact we have come a long ways
It is only in reverse
And away from You

But places still exist
Where what a woman displays
Is her character and smile
Not four-fifths of her body
As flesh crazed style

Crude advertising
The billboards lie
‘Forward’ marketing
Aimed at ‘needs’
But instead mere,
targeting of cravings

‘More, more, more’!
Our hearts and flesh cry
Never satisfied with what we have
Eyes burning
Insatiable lust
Flowing from the inquiet within.
