In This Age of Globalisation, You Do Not Fix Broken Things

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
Such efforts waste resources
And affects efficiency.
Time is money.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
Despite the beauty that gleams
Off the surface of the shard,
Leave it.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
You do not beg, convince,
Ignore the complexity of the problem
In favour of beauty.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
Rather, allow them to thrive
Among other tarnished goods;
They were always meant to be there.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
On the surface, I look whole.
On the inside, I am nothing.
Do not try for me.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.
Going against the law of enthropy
Trying to reverse the disruption
Will all be for naught.

In this age of globalisation
You do not fix broken things.

You throw them away.
