Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 30th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 30th of March.

Open wide thine eyes
They are too distracted
By the colour
Of so many bright lights
Split asunder
And refracted
Through a rheumy
Film of tears
Scant protection
Against the blinding
Realisation that the sun
Will always rise
Just as long as
Someone waits
To see the dawn
Wide eyes are blinkered
By the passage of thine own life
To see through the haze
Of indifference
It gathers at the margins
Of global corporations
Celebrating
Profit share
As pollinators die
There is no reason
To alter the result
Of this projection
A climate of rejection
Is the way forward
For the old fossil
Who fuels
The furnace
Turns a coal face
Into a stone cold stare
Down into the abyss
Partially filled
With the bodies
Of the naysayers
Soothsayers
And apologists
Who put their greed
Before the need
To rebirth the world
Future proofing
Against the looting
Of this earthly treasure
For the pleasure
Clear bright light
Fresh clean air
Would bring
To the lives of
The children
Of our disunited
Nations
