The Holocaust of the Many

 

They sent billowing soot skyward,

slaughtered

ten billion hogs  and cattle

 

...made cages of steel

for the wind to rattle

 

for gold

which was paper

with abstract wealth

 

where meaning in math

were engines in stealth

 

And a tomb of charges

lit fire

with mind

 

....for Babylon!

and human kind...
