Scorched Earth

"There was studied obsolescence in how them roads were built."
Each facet measured and remeasured by teams
Surveyors and engineers planning enmasse for the future
building on years of human experience and endeavor
Utilitarian monuments of irrelevance, except for those
who travel those roads year after year, searching for something
A humanitarian, humanistic ideal, scorched earth policy
This greying earth shaded by human hand until
she will reclaim her own, withering vines across the map
