Why?

WHY?

.

Why do you hate the hand that feeds you?

That taught you and brought you out of the night

With goals of upliftment and education

But usurped by a nation of greed?

The Harvest

The Harvest

.

Blood of my blood,

Bone of my bones,

Land of rock

And land of stones,

Withered and weathered

Where nothing grows

And mankind reaps

All that he sows.

On Global Warming – A Warning

.

Reaching for the sun,

Stretching higher and higher;

The greatest funeral pyre

Turns, and burns the earth below

Baking, flaking the once-rich soil,

Sucking it beyond the boil,

Searing, tearing, ripping asunder,

Moaning, groaning with voice like thunder,

Cracks, fissures and bottomless pits

Open gaping maws to swallow bites –

Our drying earth,

Our dying earth.

The Teardrop

The Teardrop

.

Long long ago,

Before time,

When space was an empty place,

Silence reigned.

.

A golden globe,

A shining orb,

Materialised

Like a spinning top.

And the whole world lies

In this single drop –

The key to life.

The Silver Line

The Silver Line

.

There is a silver line

That runs between sea and sky,

Betwixt this world and next.

.

If I could only fly

I’d see the new world wait for me

And when the lightning rends the air

A glimpse of shining gold appears,

A window quickly closed –

The future not exposed.

Sleep Baby Sleep

Sleep Baby Sleep

.

Softest, softest drizzle,

Cool air rocks the cradle,

Sleep, baby, sleep;

Prepare to bear the weight of the world,

The crown of thorns,

Joy and sorrow await your tomorrow.

Suicide of Civilisation

Post No.959

17 December 2016

Suicide of Civilisation

.

I wander up hill and down dale

Looking for the street called Straight,

Passing though bogs and sawn down logs –

Signs of progress while nations regress –

Where bare sand erodes in the wind

And deserts overtake the forests;

Cities and towns mushroom at every turn,

Concrete jungles whose heat smothers

The very air we breathe, the air we need,

Until mankind turns on itself

Playing the blame game to the death.
