Denial

Show me your solid streetsthat carry the weight of hefty commuters;(a dangerous swarm,)and I'll show youcracks in the earth's crustthat entire cities might slip throughand writhe in the burning magma of hades.
Oh if your shops were emptywith broken windows!Life after death of capitalismwould make honey taste that much sweeter.
These faded warning signswere the sages of damnationand their preaching voice is worn and raspy.
Pavlov's politicians breathe trinkets and television,making you salivate, ringing shiny bellswhile they take the food from your plate.
we're in this togetherbut we really hate each other,this big society's not room enoughfor ego, immigrants, exports, productionand the stacks of disguises for the storehouses of hate.
