Plant Trees

Plant Trees

Children, children
Women, men
Shut the fuck up
And listen:
Debts needn’t be forgiven
To be forgotten — ha ha
The food is real
But the credit score’s not
And the planet’s ablaze
So quit the job
And head to the street
To tear it apart
from the seams
and plant beans,
and fruit trees
