Burning Up Machines



Empty shells wrapped in glossy paper


buy and throw away


dump it in the dirt
, you know it will remain here

centuries ahead



'Feel the heat beneath our feet' 
they say, and I feel guilty

taste the filthy air we  breathe


and look how we are building



Trendy sales going back to nature


hold my conscience clean


sweep it all away, blame it on my neighbor


burning up machines



'Feel the heat beneath our fee't 
they say, and I feel guilty

taste the filthy air we  breathe


and look how we are building


help us, 
make up



The gift that once was given us


disrupted by our human nature


magnificent yet not enough


our greed and curiosity has


taken control of our want of innovation and


made us  neglect our future obligation now


see the writing at the wall,


our future history will know it all
