SPECULATIN’

Lo! The ground beneath is spent

But acquiring shit is still our bent

Decades digging for metaloid,

gas and crude have left a void

I refer not to holes in the earth

but to our need to label worth

we’ve a new commodity no less fake

called culture,

and unlike coal,

it doesn’t take

a million years to make
