The Small Print

This is for your own good,
no bones about it.
Ready your solar plexus,
here comes the hit:

Should’ve read the small print.

How did it come to this?

Should’ve read the small print.

Foresight unseen,
mind-over-money’s spent
hand over fist.
We’re prisoners of the moment
who should’ve read the small print.

Whole kit and kaboodle,
Recall, recollect
the signs and the omens.
Somehow smiling nonetheless
because as I said:
We’re prisoners of the moment,
prisoners of the moments.
Should’ve read the small print,
prisoners of the many moments.

Prisoners of the many moments.
