Foolish gold

Bulldozing bullies
digging deep
relentlessly
hacking
making birds weep

Tearing
ripping up
soil
rerouting rivers
makes my red blood boil

In search
of the yellow
whilst thrashing trees
withholding empathy
to zero degrees

Destroyers
of pretty green
stirred and shaken
grab what they can
Fool’s gold for the takin’
