Falderal by Mike Ferguson

we are divided

we are denied

we are dying

 

we have

exceeded the maximum

global requests per minute

for crawlers or humans

 

and cannot access

safety

cannot access

a roof

cannot access

food

cannot access

peace

 

even if we could crawl

to any

of it

 

we are humans

but have exceeded

humanity

 

have exceeded

its care

 

have exceeded

its capacity

 

we are everywhere

but nowhere –

we are in the

butcher’s slaughterhouse

 

though some

speaking better than we

call it falderal

 

our crawl is

falderal

 

and we have exceeded it
