What Happened?

Our world is concrete
But it's unstable

Life is short
But the hour is long

The weeds are deadly
But seem like grass

They shuffle by and wonder
But they don't care

A sweet bird's song is
Interrupted by clanks

Machines wisp by
In a rush

The sound of a siren
Stabs through the air

Whatever happened to
Playing with our shadows?

What have i realized
In this quick fifteen?

We've all abandoned
Life's great value

And the world is vain.
