Chasing the horizon

A road as old as humanity,

that has been travelled

by all kinds of beings.

Soldiers, dictators and nuclear lobbyists

as well as

slaves, test animals and child workers

have known its course

and left it covered by scars and blood.

Continuing endlessly it touches

the very end of the red horizon,

crossed by poisoned rivers

and skirted by dead trees.

Trying to find out

what sense it all holds,

you follow the traces of these,

but you just keep chasing the horizon.
