“Uncommon Sense”

Who would have thought

the thick black liquid

underneath the earth or

somewhere in the deep seas

with a smell

that makes me want to puke

can be tapped and refined

into a commodity

the world will depend on;

dictating world economies

showing the extent of human greed

determining earth’s health

causing conflicts in communities

and making governments more corrupt.

If the thought was never conceived

would the world have naively

discard this liquid

even if it flowed on free will

into their bedrooms

or would they have let it remain

where it chose to be

or would someone else still think

this liquid needs to be refined

so the world could see it

as another option

for whatever they use it for?

…but somehow someway

someone thought

this thick black liquid

underneath the earth or

somewhere in the deep seas

can be tapped and refined

into a commodity

the world would rely on

why wont the world

rely on it

sensibly?
