Naked

A child stands here naked before you

naive, untouched and unblemished

nothing has yet tarnished this vessel.

 

It feels the weight of humankind

on this mother earth

slicing her open to steal her core

the pillage of the landscape for selfish gain

thoughtless self-aggrandisement

mindless games with no regrets

the power whores who

rape and murder the innocent

who prize publicity

above basic humanity,

shame on you

you pirates on a putrid sea

your skull and crossbones

will line the coffins, and fill the urns

for all eternity

while your little empires

have evaporated into obscurity.
