The Queue

There is no line
to success-

There is no order
in which it is your turn
to succeed ahead of
another.

There is no need
to wait in
a long line
that does not lead anywhere.

What is yours will always
be yours
and what you're worth
is what you think you are
worth.

(You are God, Do no harm)

But, yes there
will always be the cutters,
the cheaters,
and
the takers.

They will try
to convince you there
is a line,
that their success
insures your success.

They will kill
every last tree,
poison every last river.
They will sell you the
bullets
and
the bandages.
They will tell you their greed is holy.

They will tell you
it will be your turn
next
to kill the trees
to poison the rivers
to sell bullets and bandages
and
it will be holy.

But they can not keep
cutting,
cheating
or
taking forever.

Eventually,
they will be put in a line,
blindfolded
against a wall,
waiting,
waiting,
waiting,
 for the
oppressed and cheated
to yell
Fire!
