In search of

When the stage
Is stabbed all over the place,
When the fields, that once fed
Millions, look robbed, broken
Into pieces, deserted;
Fatigued, famished families in famine, have fled…
In search of greener patches.

Intelligent people,
Busy, occupied, engaged;
Spending millions of dollars,
As though under the influence
Of some weeds,
In search of other planets.

Uninhabitable places,
Barren lands,
Sterile meadows,
Brown fields,
Weeping, wailing, wandering,
In search of wise attention.
