Poems - AGE of ASININITY

Poems - AGE of ASININITY
Although we still think life's a blastThe Age of Entertainment passed.The Age of Asininity Is where we find Humanity. We've given 'Mother' such abuseIt seems we think she is no use.She cries alone with no effectTo warn us all of our neglect.Some tears no longer reach the ground;Thus there's less water to be found.We cut her trees which let us breathe;And toxins in her soil we leave.Pollution we dump in the seaCreates huge zones where life can't be.Where life could be not much is seen;Without a thought we've stripped it clean.Our poisons also fill the airAt rates that show we do not care.Still offspring we give her to feedLike she'll continue to succeed.While risks of global warming riseAs CO2 clouds fill the skiesWe put Economy aheadOf forecasts that will leave us dead. Consider all the ways we tryIn vain to answer "Why am I?" I wonder, will we turn the page;Or will this be our Final Age? Economic Absurdity

When we weren't at war and we had a budget surplus and it looked like Al Gore would be president? The prospect of a 21st century filled with new technologies, new art and literature loomed large and bright. But now, as we look back at what was decidedly a shitty decade for an incredible variety of people in an equally incredible variety of ways (evictions/invasions/bombings/etc), it's surprisingly hard to be pessimistic about the books that assessed, satirized, dramatized and distracted us from the events of the past 10 years.
