ruination

They have stolen the stars from us,
they have ruined the air and
hoarded the waters.
Our fish have ick and rotten eyes,
the ribs of deer are jutting out,
the crop grows more meagre by the year
and this, too, is their doing.

We like to think they’ve got a plan,
that this is caused by – greed or greater evil.
but the truth,
the shocking, joyless truth,
is much less interesting.
