Living Robots

food festival

Food piled high
arranged with artistry
weaving layers of
tantalizing smells
rich with promise
fried in oil, sugar
filled bon-bons, chemical
saturated sauces poured
on stir-fried vegetables
grown in pollution
sprayed with toxins.

How do you kill off
seven billion eaters?
Poison their food, water,
air, ensnare their bodies
in endless work, and
dull their minds with
technology that stifles
their thoughts.

Can this story be changed?
Yes, but only the slaves
can free the slaves.
