Worthless Entertainment

“What else can I buy?” was the wretched cry – as the last memed Loris died slowly by her side. ~ In diamonds and furs she pouted and cravened, tweeting and twerking that selfie– arse–famous. ~ A man on the street, with no reason to care, made a worthless attempt to explain what is fair, ~…
