On the telly, I’ve just this moment heard
some bloke wibbling about a superhighway
in the North African desert.
‘The money for this immense project,’
‘Some five billion dollars,
is coming from [some Italian oil company]’.
Where does the money really come from?
Your pocket and mine, that’s where.
By default, we entrust
the ones with no face,
with the development
– or rather – the raping
of our world.
Oh look, the price of petrol will go up
(in the UK) by 2p/litre tonight,
I’ve just this moment heard.
Politicians won’t act.
Corporations are driven by greed.
Time to get on the bike.
