Come, look, see what we have done,

built towers of glistening glass

concrete and steel, reaching

ever higher, above the gloom,


majestic spires, concave, convex

creations, masterpieces of

engineering, so tall we

wonder how they stay upright


heads in the clouds we praise

our ingenuity as we peer down

at the streets below almost

hidden by the choke of fumes


we too have created; replacing

our forests, our fields of green

with monuments to our supposed

superior intelligence


where we can ignore the ongoing

destruction, of this place we call
