World Assimilators

World Assimilators More and more to our suburban sprawl Proliferating roads with rush hour crawl. Crush of humanity completely unfurled Replacing an irretrievable natural world Along with farm lands never more tilled Buried by progress that’s never fulfilled. Identical houses lined up in many plots On biologically sterilized landscape lots. Residers never happy with their things, Joneses always having the latest bling. We look in wrong quarters for invaders Thinking foreign, possibly alien raiders, Imaging assimilation coming from afar, Blind to how much like the Borg we are.
