Artist's Description

please click on image to view large

Once they were mighty,
Not given to pride or vanity,
Filled with life and imparting
LIFE
Strength and shade for the weary.

Now, they lie lifeless
Like fallen warriors, limbless
Mere trunks, passive
VICTIMS
Of a life, they help
Generate.

Stacked up like
CASKETS
to adorn lifeless beings;
relentless in its pursuit -
remorseless in its execution –
of numbers and material things
.
