Lewd Crude

Black shrouds blue
a dingy hue
This greedy minscus constricts us

~~Mother Earth’s shameful eyepatch~

A gull’s squak gurgled crude
chirping 89 octane birdsongs
forever grounded by fossil fuel fettered feathers
sharp eyes, glazed over, searching the horizon
for a savior from this senselessness

Feed the steely beasts,
produced in fleets,
chrome teeth and audible horns,
the black blood we gave them
and thirst for thanklessly.
Their evolution halted by prophets of profit

We extract that which we cannot put back
veins spew petroleum poison
hemmorhaging
Cuts bleed. Logically
Yet here we stand,
confounded by healing our wounded land

as figureheads foist fingers frenetically
