Bow Our Heads

When we looked
backward, upon
the paths of madness,
we will bow our
heads in shame.

You mentioned the
paths that our elders
blazed, but in no way
is it the same.

We built the machines
that would raze
the earth and would
raise the worth
of the coin over realm.

In the final years,
whilst grinning through
toxic tears, we pushed
aside the hungry roar,
and greedily counted

our bloody gold.
