I stand
Atop this mountain
Looking over the parched ground
Watching the eagles
Soar overhead
Everything else is dead
No life
No vegetation
Just this waste land
A starving earth
Endless filth
I shake my head in disappointment
The sky ripped apart with pollution
A never ending destitution
Beauty is an illusion
A hybrid fusion
Of desertion
And disillusionment
My anger spent
I climb down the other side
Back to my city.
