Imhotep Wept

RDP Thursday – ARCHITECT

 

Concrete, steel, broken roads and sidewalks that go nowhere

Walmart Shoppers and Gunhumpers  standing beer belly to jowls at the corner store

where you can still buy beef jerkey  and pickles from a fly speckled plastic jar.

Trucks belching diesel fumes,country music,  cheap after shave and aqua net-” Beep

Beep, git outta my way! ‘Murica First y’all!” the trucks cry out to uncaring traffic

cameras.

You can build roads that will take you to anywhere you want to go,  houses and buildings that will sing and talk and keep you warm and cool you off on the hottest of days.

Or

you can build a ruin on purpose and call it a home.

Imhotep wept, can’t we do better than that?
