What Comes Next?

by Kathryn Nixon

Colonies
People ruling peoples
     People shunning people
         People owning people
              People exporting people
That’s when the world went mad
 
World Wars
People fighting people
      People killing peoples
          People hiding people
              People bombing people
  That’s when the world went bad
 
Capitalism
People making a killing
     People fighting tradition
          People numbing their feelings
              Buying things, things, more things
               Then the world went mad, bad, bam bang,
                              Zap
                                        Pow, Crack
                                                      Wallop, Back
                       Back, back, back
                    
               Back, back,
 
 Back
 
What comes next?
