purposed to be the epitome of civility
fragile like a capitalistic spider web
formed by gluttony
ravenous and never satiated.
buttressed by religions morality
when the believer
enters the spider’s web
caught by its caustic illusion.
what are you
when no one is civilized?
Sodom and Gomorrah
Ad and Thamud
Ask those who killed their Prophets
you are a dream caught in darkness
the times of destruction
equal a death trap
when the temporal world
becomes your eternity
your light is gone
your intellect has dimmed
and wisdom has turned to foolishness
like dumb animals
who don’t know which way to turn
but turn nevertheless
