People reacting and building.

Is the sun losing its heat
all the voices on repeat
are our tears acidic
breaking the atmosphere
our skin is covered in moles
as we rake fire over the coals.

To much clutter
the dump trucks putter
take the whole load
some of it will corrode
as the birds get caught in circles
turning purple
less birds to tweet
waking me throughout the week.

Are there less trees
we have cut one, two, maybe a million and three
should we plant a few
I thought they grew?

Did that purple bird die
oh it was them that would fly
delivering the seeds
without them the trees aren’t freed
unable to replenish what we have taken
must we admit we have been mistaken?

Rather it is helplessness
trapped within a repetitiveness
people reacting and building
without comprehending what they are willing
striving for larger homes
as if the one we have we have outgrown
no matter how large your space
it won’t erase the truth in this case
all the resources you have obtained
for your own personal gain
is slowly killing our one true home we share
even if we don’t all care.

Thanks for reading.
