waste.

the earth is bleeding now
pus seeping out of raw, exposed wounds
and we drudge through

floods overflow the streets
destroy “civilization”
take out the vulnerable parts first
the real problems are left in tact
all the resources are still hoarded, unaffected
by the poison waters

only the transient wage earners
practically invisible
have lost everything.
