A Fairy Tale

Once upon a time
there was

a little colony that
robbed the land blind,
stole whatever 
and enslaved whoever
it needed
to maintain, then
went feral, declared itself
free (it meant “free”
in the same way

that a clipped wing
can still flap freely),
got huge and bloated,
and now

we are here,

and we get to decide
how to finish the story.
