Cutting

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Consuming and not creating
Planning and not making
Thinking without doing
This is the path they took
Into the undergrowth of
Tape and law and greed
So now in panic
They are fighting their way out
Cutting, cutting, cutting.

Lark

By Scott Bailey © 2016

Lark perched by a lake
Reflected in dark water
A train rushes by
