Where Did All the People Go?

Plastic Bags and
Plastic Spoons and
Paper Plates and
Paper Cups
Filling the Pantry

Silenced Life on the Beach
Fallen Trees in the Woods
Tangled Life in the Sea
Drowning Creatures
In Filth and Sludge

Toxic Fumes
Poisonous Fluids
Hazardous Waste
Radioactive Tremors
Generating Wealth

Mangled and Crippled
Stunted and Fearful
Hungry and Lonely
Running from danger
Families Destroyed

Utopia found
When men disappear
And all that remains
Are the ones who complain.
