Gardening and gaining perspective

Conspiracy theory swirls

I listen with half an ear

Financial gains

Economies stolen

Shock market buy ups

Who started this

Why?

It all seems fairly obvious

Over there sits a circle of leaders

Engrossed in a game of monopoly

Billionaires

Millionaires

Struggle to all take a turn

Hands stretch for the dice

Over here

The sun is warm on my shoulder

The butterflies circle

Bees drone

And for now

I plant vegetables in the garden near my home

Power struggles

Money

The seven deadly sins

Avoid them at all costs

And the noise recedes

Perhaps I stuttered

Mumbled?

We are all dying here
