Deceptions - an art work by T Newfields
As acres of wildlife become prime property
& battles across the world increase
millions starve as some feast
& merchants of death
dance for prosperity

"How long can we
haägendaaaaz like this?"
I wonder
. . . yet . . .
to those firmly glued to TV sets
or hi-resolution computer screens
such questions elicit
yawns

Will our population
wake up in time
before a cataclysm dawns?
Terri: I dunno. In every age there've been prophets of doom, but somehow humanity survives.
Tim: Survival is just part of the issue.
Kris: We've got to achieve a higher standard.
Sam: (shrugging his shoulders) Who needs an altruistic head trip? Most people only care bout dare own ass.
Tim: The whole planet is part of our ass.
