Build Back Better

Do not believe bankers, princes,
or governments; for all their wealth,
glittering gold, and grasping at control,
they haven’t ended suffering
or slowed the march of scolding sun
through Earth’s newest closing curtain call.

There are folks so evil
they would stranglehold a child
or dangle slogans like carrots,
while building a better A-bomb.

We have reached the threshold
where backs can bear no more,
but beware the man who says he’ll fix it
by adding just one more boulder
to the masses as we build back better than before.
