A constitution for retribution


 A CONSTITUTION FOR RETRIBUTION

 

WE THE PEOPLE reserve our right to live

as we elect. To plunder and abuse

your gifts, in any shape or form we choose.

The games we play with Nature’s forces give

fortunes bold, for actions not excessive.

The ground we gain is worth the land we lose.

Our future stands before you who accuse, 

of your censure we remain dismissive.

 

I THE PLANET reserve my right to die

when I am murdered. To never renew 

the lands I nurtured, which lie infertile

and deserted. Fire through my punctured sky

burns my facade. Death reigns where life once grew.

Falling on deaf ears my screams are futile.
