Sustainable – Joy Reid

The Lorax (scratching head):
Sustainable?
Sustain ur bull.

What meaning in a world where appetite is touted…
as all
and lust for product is Once-lered
by the unconscionable?
When population expansion seems tumorous…
unrestrainable
and billionaires gross-product-turduckening are fêted…
rewarded
with governmental handouts, not windfallen
but showered…
instead
while creators, thinkers, writers, Earth’s very survivalists
are flick wrist-dismissed or even…
Robespierred?

Susss-ssstain-a-bllllle.

Will all world’s oceans one day be but ghosts in shells
and shells themselves picturesque exhibits in virtual?
Will hologram mammalian visions Serangeti-graze
while dazed survivors hole and dole out food’s remains?

ASHes to
ashes
dust to
dust
how many hundred thousand cubic metres comprises loss?

Chipper chopper
chipper chopper last leadbeater’s
head, head, head, head
head, head, head, head
head, head, head, head off.
