Vented topsoil nation
1500m below the sea
A Bismarkian mystery
Raped by the International Seabed Authority.
Yeah, I know
We weren’t even there
To say aye or nay
But we’re gonna fuck it anyway.
“Inevitable environmental damage”
Plays backseat to the real “need”
And the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea
Gives the poor folks some of the proceeds…
“We are at the threshold of a new era of deep seabed mining.”
Knowledge well worth having
But not executing
Not on this planet.
The Clarion-Clipperton Zone
An entire alien race’s home
They think they have it all mapped
But it doesn’t depict their head up their ass.
“Proper controls equals proper sustainabilty.”
Are bold words for someone with no accountability
It’s just a paycheck
For someone who doesn’t give a shit.
Soil Machine Dynamics
Accomplishes the fantastic
With seafloor mining tools
Never before used.
We rise up
As we fall down
Choking on our own failures
With eyes to the sun.
