Crystal Woods

by Aayushi

It was amusing, When the woods

were chopped down

It was amusing, To see them fuck up 

and burn it to the ground

It took a minute 

Until they realized it at the end

Legalizing the dismantling of the woods

Was gonna overload the system that hung by a thread

They fawned over their ideas

Said they had the control 

And failed to observe that 

the winds had begun to swirl

Defenestrated anyone 

That spoke against them

They didn’t realize that control

Was a mesmerizing illusion, a game

Against their lavish gesticulations

Lies and advocacy

The flames of rebellion

had managed to ignite
