Urban Renewal

The dozers rumble
And the hood turns to rubble
Man and mammon in disarray
No finger lifted in affray

Deep beneath the terrain
Chambers in quiet repose remain
Their majesty, the maggots holding courts
Meting justice to unfertilized lots

The moral, bellows King Maggot:
Be not afraid of the despot
Who ravages the “super-” to nonsense
But leaves the “sub-“ in quiescence.
