The creatures they feed
upon the Earth beneath their feet
an organism never to be set free
the creatures grow larger as the ground struggles to breathe.
Are they blissful
their bellies are full
roundly plumped their society has flourished
for the accumulation of wealth
at the expense of public health.
After putting in a few hours tonight on a children’s story I’ve been working on I needed a break from kid cartoonish creatures. Therefore I took a mental break to draw whatever and ended up with an image that took me awhile to try and make any sense out of it. I decided to write a poem to challenge myself. The above poem is what I ended up with.
Thanks for reading.
