Poetry: “On fire”

And have some frustration on the world being on fire…

***~***~***~***

On fire

The world’s on fire
And I stand helpless watching
Watching how
Human greed
Keep tearing holes
In the sky
In the ground we stand on
Not caring
If we all fall down
Fueled by desire
Yea, just desire to possess
More and more and even more
While hollow eyes children
Weep for their dead parents
As the last orangutan
Clings to the last tree
In the rainforest
Standing in a sea of palm tree oil
And soy
As we in the west
Breathe in the filth we let out
And claim it still smells sweet
