Beautiful Destruction


So beautiful yet so destructive

The tiny tendrils of smoke peek out from the stacks

Looming overhead in position to poison

The population sits patiently underneath

Accepting the fruits of the process of destruction

In the form of energy, technology, progress

Mother Nature fights the good fight and tries to balance

The cars and trucks speed overhead on the overpass

The fish swim amongst the muck, human discards, concrete and poison,

It all lurks under the liquid glass, already in position releasing its’ toxins

To all who dare wade in its’ murky waters
