ALGAE RHYTHMS

The solution to this problem
This pollution of community
Is tricky to spot when the river appears to be thriving
 Yet furry blanketed top
An orgy of algae
Is an aquatic invasion that blots out sunlight
Scurrying for breath beneath
Population growth stunted
Not in number
But awareness
Proliferation yields false economy
More cattle to herd
More sheep to slaughter
Slain by colonial axe dripping with dogma
Governed by algorithms
Smothering flotillas clog waterways
Segregate community development
One dam at a time
Soon the entire river will be congested
A sea of monocultural microbes
Giving the appearance of vitality and growth
While what lies beneath
Bears no reflection to what’s on top
No life left if the light is blocked
If the very thing that conjures harmonious equations
Is starved of its formula
