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

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

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?

To the corporate mind

Saudi Arabia is virtuous

those with all the money

tell the others what to do

 

buy bombs and guns from

the military industrial complex

to keep the status quo

 

With enough surplus

in bombs and guns

to create another war or two

 

To the corporate mind

profit

Justifies war

When Macron comes

The people will recognise

that politicians lie

to the people

 

deliberately

on behalf of corporate interests

that are not their interests

 

truth will create an upswell

but will it recognise truth

or self interest

New old words

Cannnot help but think

maybe some of the fault lies

within the millennial stultocratic kakistocracy

decreeing that every opinion

is just as equally valuable
