On Amazon being an appalling company, I agree. It's not just the warehouse staff who get abused either.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about

the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
