Shinto

 

By M. E. Riddle

 

 

 

 

 

City flattened, economy crushed

People starving, many hushed

The nothing machine worked

And many rejoiced

At the techno-volcano

As a mound of dirt.

 

We live in a conscience

Where no rice grows

A house of cards

A land of stone

A place of cold.

 

Factorized meditation

Industrial clone

An entire life’s savings

To live on a throne

To be with our own.

 

The tide brought evil

And all that it stands

Accumulating

In waves breaking sand

In a desperate lonely land.
