let's do nothing



Let’s do nothing

As it goes

Let's do nothing but watch as it
drip-drops
life
  away.

Let's do nothing
 as languages are lost
  faces forgotten
   as we become copies

Let's do nothing, yes
Let's stand by

Let's do nothing
As our neighbours are murdered, till
It trickles red under our doors –
  It always starts as a trickle.

Let's do nothing
 as smoke fills our lungs
gathers round our children
  our own children
 Let's do nothing
 As our dogs run away
  Howling how could you
   Let's do nothing
    As the aerials tear from the rooftops
Let's do nothing.

Let's do nothing,
Sit distracted, glance outside
as the last leaf drifting, down
Dead

  Let's do nothing as
 a snowflake
the final snowflake
 melts
Away – gone

there won’t be another for ten thousand years
there won't be another while we ––
How could we?

   the idea of ice will be lost
 as the oceans rise up against us
      Uncaring the sun will scab our skin
 and the deserted land beneath our feet
  Lose its blue blanket
      burning
 skies quake
  forests thunder
    seas churn
sands spread and
 Spread and spread and
           blow over our bones
 without a sigh
  But a whisper how
could you.

 You

you see the last living things
 go, whimpering,
or silent as the grasses gone
 rigor mortised under
a barren branch
 in the wind, the wind, no longer a whisper but
a scream
  how could you
do
nothing.

Our soles have forgotten the sound of soil.
Yes, let's do nothing as the world ends.

Let's do no–––

    Let’s
 Do
Some
  Thing
Let's
 Wake
  Up
From
    Our
  Nice
Dream ––––
