Getting High in the Modern World

Having run
out of
ground to
walk on
cities around
the world
have begun
going vertical.

 

There’s a
building in
Dubai the
Burj Khalifa
that’s over
a half
mile high
& in
Hong Kong
there are
interlocking
vertical communities
the residents
of which
never get
lower than
five storeys
off
the ground.

 

Some see
this as
a tribute
to man’s
ingenuity.

 

Meanwhile the
polar ice
continues
to melt
& the
land crumbles
into
the sea.
