Quantity vs. Quality

I own big cars
    And VCR's
  A big backyard
      And jars
          Of Reddenbacher's best.

I put out three cans
    For the garbage man
        Every Thursday.

    What choice do I have?
        Are they laughing at me?
            Did I do something wrong?

Like a rat
        In a sinking ship
      (stinking shit),
    I swim
        In the vomit
            Of materialism.
