Fortunes of Fortunes

Rows of woman sowing
no time for a breath
not even looking up
the lack of air and the lack of light

piles of rubbish and walls of trees
smoke of cigarettes links in with factory fumes
dusty plains along the horizon
cracked ground and futureless land

red lights of towers ahead
high topped buildings the symbol of our society
constant commuting of buses, trains, trams and cars
non stop renovation and modernisation

children crying along the floors of supermarkets
homeless people living in dim and dirty ally ways
girls kidnapped brothelized for their whole lives
farmers living on a loaf of bread for a month
plants looking for the light but unable to locate
