Dead Plants

Dead Plants

Dying hopes

Dead of winter

Impossible to cope

Destructive downsizing

This country of consumers

Is becoming a sad wasteland

Of dead plants and lost souls

The few and powerful lords

Have gone to the Bahamas

With sun and  tax shelters

Our slumping country’s

Wealth left with them

Leaving behind only

Rusting structures

With shattered

Windows and

Shattered

Dreams
