Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Neglect”

Neglect by RomancingMaria

Nasty, neglectful creatures that we’ve become

Everything we touch seems to suffer to some extent

“Give an inch, take a mile,” a saying far too fitting

Leaving a thirsting world in our wake, wanting only the smallest return

Except for us, there is nothing to give back–we only consume

Completely gorged and overflowing with more than we could ever need

This is where we find ourselves–bloated and choking on greed
