Amazonia burns like Texas old growth forests did 150 years ago
Set ablaze to make way for the ocean of ranchland
That now sustains oil rigs and hoarded wealth.
The Doctrine of Discovery never went out of print.
Outcast Nazis settled in South America after the war.
They mock the Global North and their castigation.
Was it not the fountain of western domination –
Burning down forests and killing Indians?
Does the mineral extraction and industrial agriculture
That orders the global economy ever slow for ethical reasons?
We act aghast when shown actual carnage, while our hands oil the killing machine.
The first class polish masks and chant mantras to the father anti-culture.
