The penultimate NaPoWriMo for 2010

Something that returns as front page news again and again.  Not quite the RWP prompt, but this is something I still can’t quite face.

The Earth is bleeding
they say, but it’s not quite true.
Blood doesn’t poison.
They always forget the Earth
wears her life on the outside.

And the reason for being short:

project proposals
take crucial time away from
projects in progress
