Unnatural Disasters
(9/11/2021)


Brother Bollocks
reads
about the
fires

the floods

the tornadoes

the hurricanes

the earthquakes

the rescues

the rebuilding

the severity
of each occurrence
rated
by the amount
of damage done
to our social
structure

he thinks
of the ancients

considering
themselves
guests upon
this earth

who would
simply
pack their tents

their belongings

their families

and move
to safer
climes

Brother Bollocks
believes
that when
modern humans
are the measure
of any catastrophe

that they
tend to look
no further
than their
own rulers

seeing
what was
lost

instead
what
belongs
