WHAT A WILDERNESS

 

 

Refineries refine no crude

Factories produce nothing,

Industries go under

Fiery furnace have no ores

Ovens bake no cake

Rivers have no fishes,

Trees bear no fruits

Roads lead nowhere

Hospitals treat no patients,

Schools train no students

Farms produce no harvests

Teachers starve to death

Heroes remain unknown,

Legends totally forgotten

Personalities die lame

Ghosts become workers

Stars never shine

Illiterates are forecasters

Talent freeze latent

Giants crawl like ants

Elephants, never elegant

Snails have no shells

Prisoners, innocent

Liars fly like doves,

WHAT A WILDERNESS!
