Brutus

Tick-tock
this greed
this air we breathe
how now brown cow
the AIDS disease
the simple truth
deceit and fears
as empires crumble
shame
no tears
big-bang
our turn
one power
corruption
ten million children dead
who’s suffering?
Mother Nature
crime
pollution
he forest’s gone
bad-debt
solution?
precious, precious, precious war
they’re burning books
time’s up
no more:
the need to know your ABC
an outstretched hand (no dignity)
money markets
prostitution
sweat shop children
evolution
big bad wolf
the taste of water
one, two, three worlds
human slaughter.
