I write what I feel…

Mass Suicide



Climate change:
Mass suicide
But the proof is in the pud.

Is man committing suicide
Cutting off his own air supply?
Poisoning his food resource
At the source?

The signs are there for all to see
In biochemistry.
S-l-o-w-l-y earth’s thermostat rises
Heating his earthly home
Beyond what can be borne ~
Viability for life deprived.

Do animals attempt to show man,
By killing themselves,
A quick death is preferable to slow?

1. Beaching whales, New Zealand. (
2. 450 sheep jumped over a cliff in Turkey. (
3. Dogs jump to their death from Scotland’s Overtown Bridge. (

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. This is maybe close to the truth than we think,,, nicely put…


  2. ugh…that last bit…the animals even feeling the effect and killing themselves off to not face what is coming…brutal…and pointed….


  3. Man should be doing the equivalent of the beaching or jumping – that would make more sense!
