CULTURES? YEP!

Not unlike an Algebraic Formula or Equation -
The Left Side Must Equal the Right Side - Balance!
The Earth, 'Mother Nature' - Once had That!
Then - Enter MAN ... Stage Left ...
The Culture of: Asininity - Stupidity - Avarice -
DEVASTATION ... Thy Name is MAN!






“All Things Bright And ... Ugly”

© - Tom Hyland - 11/23/10


WAR !
“And the Bombs Bursting in Air...”
Certainly Bright!
People - Wounded, Maimed, Murdered ...
Certainly Ugly!


NEON LIGHTS !
“On Broadway - on Broadway ...”
Certainly Bright!
People - Pick-Pockets, Paupers, Prostitutes ...
Certainly Ugly!


CARS !
Shiny, Aero-Dynamic, High-Speed, Glistening Beauties ...
Certainly Bright!
Gas-Guzzling - CO2 Belching - Ozone Destroyers ...
Certainly Ugly!


AIR !
“All I Need is the Air that I Breathe ...”
Certainly Bright!
Polluted - Chemicals - CO2 and Diesel Fumes ...
Certainly Ugly!


WATER !
Glistening Three-Fourths of the Earth’s Surface ...
Certainly Bright!
“Water, Water Everywhere - but Not a Drop to Drink!”
Certainly Ugly!


FIRE !
Crackling Logs and Embers in the Hearth ...
Certainly Bright!
Jet Fuel Exploding in the Twin Towers ...
Certainly Ugly!


EARTH !
“For The Beauty of The Earth ...”
Certainly Bright!
Feral - Finite - Frivolous - Futile - Man ...
Certainly Ugly!
