You, fallen

shattered on impact

scattered far and wide.

We, scrambled

rushed for pieces

pushed in as far as they can.

Babel, divided

separated by minds

isolated by possessive attachments.

I, fallen

parachute to the fringes

infiltrate barriers for security.

It, time

for stock be taken

dry air be humidified.

Cobweb, formed

decadence brushed aside

in favour of disguise.

Fashion, faded

early adopters failed to retire

while energy seeps outward.

Life blood, clotted

and chemicals packed tightly

like free radicals slam home.

We, invaded

stand on impact

divided near but wide.

We, stood

confused at crossroads

dazed by development.

We, petrified

paralysed by progress 

consolidated by conflict.
