leafy appreciations

learning was supposed to be helping ourselves
ending instead in front of bosses with pretend power
and they don’t want you to work hard or
find a way to actually be appreciated and
young people dying as cogs in the machine
among the blood of years of workers who came before
playing the role of oiling the gears of deathly
progress and eerie destructive innovation
ready for the doom that
evens the score of the value of the paper
coming from the past when
all the wars are proving the disgusting greed
the real renown in denial of compassion
if that was the reminding we could have used
only if the final war
now was the belief in all beings created equal
so the advancement of society can happen
