Building The Destruction



I wrote this poem after watching the news in Fall 2009. I realized then that our world is slowly deteriorating and we have only ourselves to thank. With all news coverage on the oil spill, I realized this poem really isn't that insane..........


Building the Destruction

The world
is building its own
Destruction:

Housewives crowd shops,
Doctors become the disease,
Girls competing to be America’s Next Top Model.

The world is visibly torn:
Shores drown the world as a stage gets curtained.

Once,
Housewives stayed at home
and took care of their kids.

Once,
Doctors raced to homes
to save a life.

But now,
the world is gasping for life.

Now,
Housewives make for an entertaining TV show.
Now,
Doctors can create the perfect body.

The world is on the verge of vertigo—
f
a
ll
ing
to the
depths of destruction.
