I Admire You

I admire you - your lights and the way
they shine. Look at the electric beauty.
What is the expense? What are you doing?
Killing your Mother, so that you may live.
I admire you - your buildings and the
way they stand. Oh so tall and oh so proud.
But in your streets your brothers and sisters
are killing each other killing themselves.
I admire you - your roads and the way
they wind out and pave adventures to take.
But where you go, trees used to stand and fields
used to grow. Now they’re dead and forgotten.
I admire you - your killing power.
I admire you, with your apathy.
