A city,
A country,
A world.

Populations grow and shrink:
New births,
New deaths.

Murder
Age
Suicide

Some form a bond,
Others split.

New jobs,
New tasks
New methods.

Leaders,
Followers,
Mercenaries

Buildings collapse,
The world weakens,
Many die.

The planet is gone,
But others are left.

A city,
A country,
A planet.

All inside a living being,
All inside me,
All inside you,
All inside us!
