Arrogance Burning

n

You are an arrogant people living in an arrogant society

You live in a desert

You live in a society where power equals respect

You make boatloads of money from barrel-loads of oil (taking from nature)

You build extravagant and tall buildings … just because you can

You cover those buidings with flammable “combustible thermo-plastic core held between two sheets of aluminium”

You put that building in the hot desert sun

You find out that those tall shiny buildings are not solar collectors … but actually flammable solar collectors

You watch those buildings go up in flames (nature taking back)

You user precious water (remember – desert!) to put those fires out

Why go to all the trouble … you could have just burned the oil directly

Brilliant. Literally brilliant. Only literally.
