Anti-Biotic

Dreams for sale

Beauty art knowledge

Spread out by a cartographer

The greens a vibrant shopping mall.

Flip choose toss away

Trees shrink in shame,

Axed down tomorrow

For neons to shine brighter

On synthetic silken streets,

Streets with a soul of god,

Patiently assuming a world of chaos.

Tides swell with a rage

Leviathan hungry for a human morsel

Alkali to balance the oil spill.

Atmosphere biosphere

Human sphere

Spinning dizzy like a Catherine wheel

A magic wand to stop it all please,

The fire the sparks

And the smoke,

Doused by a potion

To combat the human anti-biotic.
