The Super Rich Require

an ever growing number of
low-wage-high-debt shoppers
in their sprawling global Market
that simply cannot account
for an Earth that won't survive it
since only their very own
instinct-driven appetites
for getting ahead of everything
with an ever-growing share of it
can actually keep
their attention
just long enough
to be intensely aware of it,
while their ecocidal gains
pump the prices higher
on the spreading global dump,
they wax & sun at posh resorts
leaving any still alive
to scrape and salvage
whatever may be left of it.
