Working the Earth

Work to produce to

Make the day into

Something full of

Activity to replace

The necessity it used to bring,

When cold was a thing to be

Feared and hunger

Was a real beast

Lurking in the thicket

Keeping sucklings fed.

Work to produce to

Make life out of business

And stuff out of wire to

Whirr full the cables that

Keep operating while the

Forests host hackers and

Frozen screens glacier

Crash faster than we can

Gloss over snaps with cyber

Ice cream to fill the cracks

Where Earth used to be .
