We are Failing

Technology has come so far
From the invention of the wheel
We dream now
Of moving without
It spinning beneath
Our metal and plastic machines

But can we realize our dream
Of flight made mundane
When we still walk on neglected ground
While the slope crumbles at our feet
With a nuclear wasteland waiting beneath

The universe is waiting
As we destroy the only home we’ve ever had
We are failing
And yes
This is a test
