Prosumer, Vosumer, Spirisumer
So I heard a brand-new word today:
Prosumer: professional consumer.
As opposed to..?
Wouldn't you say that most of us
are professional consumers now?
We're so prosuming;
So dedicated to the cause of consuming;
We're professional consumers of consuming:
And some of us take prosuming to another level:
It ain't just a job, but a feeling of love;
A need to serve:
And then -
Above vosumers are
Those that take consuming to its spiritual realm:
For these enlightened souls rarely consume what they buy,
They just put their new belongings away,
They say bye-bye;
And off into bags and boxes they go:
To eBay, charities or recycling.
These spiritual consumers just -
And buy and buy:
True anti-materialists of the post-modern world:
Learn these new words today.
