I Am The Master

Image: Zombie by Ami Prasad

The satin box of hubris exploded
covering farmlands with grey ash
Truth danced outside insolent ears
suffering from selective hearing
Why arrogance has a steel temper?
Can’t it just melt
on the tip of the tongue
like homemade fudge
Who cares if I have a backbone?
I am the Master of Plant Earth

About the Poem

It surprises me how we have been ignoring the call to preserve nature and biodiversity. It’s high time that we listen.
