Reeling Destruction
By Kelly How
Grade 12
St. Ignatius College Prep HS
San Francisco, CA
Hungry to possess,
impatient individuals shovel through 
miscellaneous piles of
countless trinkets – 
pens and key chains ringing
unnecessary bait 
find shelter surrounding cash registers 
adding to brown bag purchases. 
Enlarged crimson sale signs – 
CLEARENCE, 40% reductions, 75% off
reeling in hundreds, 
thousands of naïve participants of 
consumerism 
looking for a steal in 
satisfaction.
Made in China 
reads every shirt – 
pedestrians dismiss 
child labor, human trafficking, putrid wages;
some, however, hand over Benjamin
instead of Jackson in an 
attempt for social praising. 
Yet, all buy, ignorant of damages to 
planet earth and its inhibitors.
Emitting toxic fumes
factories destroy 
producing infinite articles of 
material possessions 
resulting in millions of 
tons of waste – 
too soon will it lodge in
our own backyard.
