Climate change

We have consumed half of the resources of the world
Or slightly more
To build something that must re-capitalise
half of the resources again
Exponentially

In order to maintain this human half life
We compete to consume our finite sphere
Accelerating entropy
Without even the most basic understanding
Of science

Values

We make everything
And then more
To make more
Of everything

And where a market exists
We make from everything
A new part
Of everything

Since everything
Actually already exists
We are simply changing the value
Of everything

(Consumption creates entropy)

In the event of war 2

They create fear
and sell you their tale,
that more weapons
protect you from fears

You buy the story,
Yet fear the war
that protects you
from peace

Replacement

By 2030 the EU aims to generate 27% of its energy from renewable sources. However, the renewable-energy sector in Europe is heavily reliant on hydrocarbons for the supply of raw materials critical for the development of technology such as solar cells and wind turbines.

Rumours

I have started to hear the consequences of my consumption
In broad daylight my armoire accuses me of killing an Amazonian frog to create it
My iPad, calls to me at night, asking how many acres of habitat were disrupted, in order to mine its contents
My batteries cry themselves to sleep, and dream of the deaths of the soon to be extinct flamingos
My coffee cup mocks me in the morning, for assuming it can be infinitely recreated
My windmills joust at me on the weekend, in recognition that a millenia of stored solar energy was repurposed to last a mere 15 or so years
The entire planet whispers at me, entropy

Consumption 2

Trying to eat my way out of life
I accidentally die

Fortunaely someone else is alive
To consume my ration
Until there is no more left

At which point
Everything dies

Trying

I am trying to consume as
speedily as possible
I was told that my consumption,
fuels the economy
Which might otherwise run out

I continue to believe
Everything is infinitely fine
Because if I stop
the Economy dies
taking everything else with it

Sustainability becomes a belief
that assuages all fault,
Because, after all,
if you didn’t consume
wouldn’t I?
