Sometimes this weird light
gives up the ghost of forebears
-Promethean spoor-

The great whales gave us
lantern fuel harpooned at sea
to trim our wicks for;

Blackstone mines cough up
scattered dwindling anthracite:
warmer, brighter, more;

Markets crave new holes,
currencies beg, borrow, steal,
finance nets new stores;

Purchasing power
elicits advertisements
too sly to ignore;

Holes in the ground spewed
petroleum by-products
(crashed whale-hunter's door);

Internal combust
sucks gas like a sponge, speeding
largesse by motor;

Ships become metal
breaking waves, air and cross
-border protectors;

Commerce gets global,
technology outpaces
many folk's labor;

Titans of finance
assert dumbfounding clauses:
Great masticators;

Cross-talking language
divides many, expectant,
prognosticators;

Teeming many fly
over wage-slaved citizens
left just below floors;

Papers cite libel
laws to explain absent rich
child-fornicators;

Seeming compliant
the ratcheted hunger-sames
spin in their same gore;

Droughts on land, in minds,
Floods eat crops, fires devastate:
Feeds speculators;

No water, no air,
Flint gives us no answer fit
for human-chain mores;

Youth astride dawn's door,
shot dead seeking awareness.
No light left to rhyme.

I'm a little pimp
Meet me on the corner, boy
Twenty dollar bill.
