Homemade

People complain
About losing their jobs,
About hardly being able to make a living,
About the young moving away.

They speak of
Better times in the past,
About what they didn´t need then,
About how they grew some of their food themselves.

Now everything is easier.
Furniture is cheap, old stuff is thrown away,
Food is from countries we don´t even know the capital city of,
A garden is an expense, not a necessity.

Our everyday life is made in China,
Our everyday troubles are homemade.
