earth note 282

during the drunken frat party
the bankers changed suits
grabbing their insiders
& raising the extractive industries
up to the highest altar
grotesque contours
to the land
from its dark bowels
to the sun of its mountain tops

a hangman's noose
a fait accompli
outlives the judge
posing now
as a lariat
changing colors regularly
to match the new panache
threading the new hipsters
for another go around

the growling heard
is the same old machinery
chewing & spitting
covering the tracks
like any addiction
