On the road
to extinction
with heads
held high,
we are zombies
unwilling
to acknowledge
the light,
caring not for
our world
as it crumbles
and cries
as if self-destruction
were our
God given
right.

This is a
civilization
in search
of blood,
whose intelligence
has led
to its own
demise;
knowledge
deliberately
misunderstood
and power
the reason
for nurturing
lies.

Naked
before God,
clothed only
in the sin of omission
of wisdom for profit,
scientific knowledge
trapped in politician logic,
as we press forward
determined to win,
trading in our humanity
for luxury’s coffin
– sleeping blissfully
in a bed of roses
that’s rotten
– as civilization
nurtures a world
of confusion
we run
with abandon
towards our own
dissolution.
