Progress Builds in Bridges

Larceny by trope.
So many ropes and
Strangulating threads
Weave opportunity
For me-first desperation.

Who is hung?
Who hogs the rungs?

Why climb?
The uncivilising mass
Hit critical way back.
Grime makes it fit for
Neither Path nor pack.

Pull the ladder up.
No, really –
Keep it: who needs
The Company that tilts
The World to asset strip
And eat its riches?

Progress builds in bridges.
