Diamante Verses #001

AUSTRALIA
Australia
Fascist, worthless
Scheming, cheating, lying
Rich, powerful, money brokers
Robbing, looting, destroying
Rotten, corrupt
New Holland

CBD (II)
CBD
Heartless, soulless
Hurting, ripping, rending
Homeless people slowly dying
Using, abusing, destroying
Unconscionable, unforgivable
Inner Melbourne

THE CITY (I)
Melbourne
Dark, gloomy
Despairing, grieving, crying
A morass of hopelessness
Wishing, hoping, failing
Perverted, ruthless
The City

LIFE IN THE 21st CENTURY (II)
Living
Hungry, lonely
Hating, hunting, harvesting
Is there no hope?
Teasing, terrorising, torching
Harried, watchful
Suffering.

EARTH TODAY
Earth
Polluted, dirty
Dying, failing, heating
Global warming killing us
Crying, losing, burning
Drowning, sickly
Terra Firma

GLOBAL WARMING
Warming
Lifeless, hopeless
Burning, melting, killing
Polar caps soon melting
Rising, soaking, sinking
Dying, drowning
Endless summer!

THE GRIM REAPER (II)
Reaper
Lethal, sly
Reaping, chopping, scything
Grimly slaying human beings
Cutting, lopping, killing
Deadly, final
Death!

UNEMPLOYMENT (II)
Unemployed
Degraded, downtrodden
Begging, pleading, failing
No-one gives a damn!
Crying, sighing, dying
Beaten, belittled
The forgotten
