screams unheard from a house on fire


ya’ ever look up from your life

and notice the world burning again,

and squint your eyes shut

to block out the smoke.


ya’ ever been driving down the street 

and see that one truck

pumping out world killing smog,

and just want to run them off the road.


ya’ ever seen those people too caught

up with scorning your generation’s

foibles to notice that their 

feet are fucking melting 


ya’ ever want to scream from the 

rooftops of the world how fucking 

angry you are that no one seems to care

that you’re inheriting a dying world


ya’ ever think all of that shit

then decide that it’s better for

your mental health to 

just go back to watching tiktok
