Modern Bomb

Modern Bomb

A stolen traffic cone

left to fend for itself in the undergrowth;

a stark reminder that Mother Nature’s home

is plagued with humans

and helicopter drones,

drowning out Her sounds

from behind distant clouds.

Casting a shadow

across the half built houses,

black picket fences

and synthetic turf trenches

marking war territory now.
