ridiculous flight of fancy

imagine another
planet
far off
on the otherside
of the universe
populated
by meat puppets
controlled by
electrified
gelatin infused
with chemicals
operating
combustion engines
encased in
glass and plastic
at high velocity
speeding along
scars rent directly
into the flesh
of the world
that sustains them
spewing poisons
into the same
atmosphere they
choke on
dumping waste
into their only
drinking water
and wondering why
the rest of
the universe
pretends they do
not exist
absurdity at the
absolute finest
a true stretch
of imagination
because surely
no species could
be so consumed by
paper slips that
once represented
precious metals
and now only
represents mounting
dread and debt
