House Arrest 34 (English Madrigal)

House Arrest

There’s no place safe on earth. There never was.
Our culture stalled beneath complacency,
the base too broad for continuity.

Some thought we were protected by our laws,
but they’re committee-built stupidity.
There’s no place safe on earth. There never was.
Our culture stalled beneath complacency.

Of course we’re plagued with viruses, because
we chose to cluster into density,
creating grand municipality.
There’s no place safe on earth. There never was.
Our culture stalled beneath complacency,
the base too broad for continuity.
