Map of Radiation Levels around Fukishima

Fading

News of
Fukushima
fading
here,

the disaster cycle
has gone the distance, the wheels fell off,
the news is limited,

soundbites are temporary creatures,
attention spans are squat and stunted,
thoughts move to more graspable
disasters,

we can only take so much on board,
radioactivity hangs around
too long

for an ADHD society,

powers that B
wait for us to forget,

they’re counting on it,

for business as usual.
