Already Condemned

Stand upon a stairway,
Leading to the stars.
When the structure starts to quake,
Hold onto the bars.
Drive along the Golden Gate Bridge
And view the open earth.
And when the waters rock the land,
Do not taste the dirt.
When California’s earth quakes,
Don’t be afraid of them.
For long before they came along,
The world was already condemned.
