A poem by Bijal Shah
Aggressive practices, misleading information
Lack of transparency, hidden agendas
Premiums beyond market rates
What is the rationale for this anti-social behaviour!
The pursuit of higher profits
I feel cheated, numb, angry
Or wait am I just a fool?
Big bully monopolies vs the people
Where is the government and its anti-competitive policies?
Dear God, give me the courage to speak up.
Do we pay or do we revolt?
Out of principle, I will not pay
They can threaten me with poor credit scores
Justice is justice
I stand strongly by my morals
The pursuit of money at all costs
Is like a growing cancer to society
Robbing them of their right to fair treatment
Diminishing their peace of mind
Slowly chipping away at their mental health
You know how to make a tidy profit
But you cannot tell right from wrong
I hope one day you pay it forward
Maybe then I will forgive you
But only once justice has been served.
A big hello and thank you for reading! Passionate about literature, psychology, and life I launched Book Therapy as an alternative form of therapy using the power of literature. I create reading lists/personalised book prescriptions based on your individual needs, this is my signature personalised reading service. You can also check out Book Therapy’s other free reading lists and A- Z of book prescriptions (covering both fiction and non-fiction). These suggest books based on your existing life situation (e.g. anxiety, job change, relationship heartache) as well as interests (e.g memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, crime etc). There’s also one for children, Children’s A — Z of Book Prescriptions. Feel free to check out the blog for more literary gems. There’s also a post on my personal story of how I entered the world of bibliotherapy and book curation. And if you’d like to connect, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.booktherapy.io.
