Many in System

I will take years to recover from
the scheme of the engines;
“Block, block, blunt! Block, block, blunt!”

And the people, the swarms of people:
rushed to an early positive, descended
devoured, destroyed. The worst

are still cultivated on the fire acres;
locust ministers with chilli-sick blaze.
Government farmers will not starve.

-- Rebecca Eddy
