Class Warfare

The children of the rich are becoming a separate species
That they are taller and better looking can be put down to
Good nutrition and confidence respectively
But they have long thin limbs
Delicate long fingers
Large but flat chests
They run for miles and still have
Energy for enthusiastic, cool skinned, inventive sex
They are being bred for some high, thin aired Shangri-La
As the world below falls apart they will breathe
Clean air, they will run up and down their mountain valley
Use their long thin fingers to operate computers
Doing rocket science


They will fight wars against us low-landers
As we rise from the sludge of all that is left
They will leave for Mars and we will stay
Failing to deal with a biosphere spasming
And collapsing back to slime mould


The children of the rich are becoming a separate species
