A Poem: The Tyranny of Things

Be minimalist,
not acquisitive.
Perhaps philanthropist
be your cup of tea?
What joy do trifles bring?
Fie the tyranny of things.

Discussion Questions:

1. Check the difficult words in a dictionary.
2. Can you understand the rhyme? What are the rhyming words?
3. Try to simplify the poem by rewriting it using easier words or synonyms.
4. Read your new poems aloud or post them all for the whole class to read.
5. What are your views about materialism and consumerism?
