This poem is all about how the media and popular culture affect the way we,
as americans think. The commericials and jingles hinder our comprehension
of the world around us. They try to tell us how to dress, what to buy, what
"the look" is, but when we conform to that, we become clones of each other
and lose our individuality. I love this poem because it rings so true.

This poem is all about the rampant consumerism in the Twenties -- but still
rings completely true today. I love how he puts his comments in paranthesis
-- like backhanded asides or simply commentary that would not have been
"accepted" outside of the parenthesis, in the rest of the poem. Whenever I
read this poem I think of "Got Milk?" and "Where's the Beef?" And ending
it all with a toothpaste commercial. Brillant.

Interesting way to convey policital views and the way people try to portray
things with "pretty" words. This was the 1st time I read anything by this
