You keep burying it
Encased in flimsy
Away from the people
That you love
But the earth rebukes you
And your demons
Come out to haunt us instead
Seeping through our soil
Poisoning us
The ghosts of your greed
Are making us sick
But they won’t be stopped
Until you are
And we won’t be silenced
We will haunt you, too
But we won’t wait
Until we’re buried
