Ticking clock

There’s screaming, there’s looting, there’s killing, and the people are saying do something.

The fouling, the lingering threat, damning and dooming.

Complaining and agitating for reforming of the laws governing.

But the leaders are watching and acting like it’s nothing.

Answering and taming requests, by enforcing and dictating.

They’re ignoring and pretending as though the impending chaos isn’t anything.

Only concerning themselves with planning for the next voting, a timing so uncertain.

A timing intended for prolonging the gaining from pilfering, only enriching unending.

The clock is ticking, and time is fading.

If they keep pretending like it’s nothing, and the chaos keeps unfolding, time will keep running and soon the mine comes exploding.
