You were there on the day
when the wind blew in from the East
and swept everything in its path.
You saw it all happen on TV
yet you still deny it.
“it was bad luck” you say
as you scavenge through the rubble
looking for pieces of yourself
stubbornly planning to recreate
a life that has long since become a relic.
But denial will weaken your new foundations
anger will spoil your crop
Greed will become food for the wind again
And karma will seep like rain through your roof
