Progress

They call it progress,
metal casings housing cinder blocks.
Deforestation giving way to concrete buildings;
Our utopia?
Smog laden lungs
cough out toxic air,
despite the fact mask are worn
to ward off the ominous invasion
of pollutant spores.
My carbon footprint is housed
in a 10 x 10 square room...
relatively safe at the moment.
I wonder if my existence
will end up in some orbital
catastrophe?
In the meantime officials
try to placate outcries,
but all we're left with is the scene
of plastic trees blocking
progress.
