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.

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!

  1. Man’s ego
    (Note the gender)
    Misreads the message
    Sets God aside
    Takes over
    In a mindless haze
    Heads heedlessly
    For the nearest cliff

  3. And meanwhile that great USA
    (Irony or sarcasm – your call)
    elects
    (or what passes for that charade
    a numbskull who denies the whole thing.
    Bummer all round. 😦
