Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 27th of April.~An unforgiving climate of change.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 27th of April.
An unforgiving climate of change.

There is no space
For manoeuvre 
Internal debate
Has given way to inertia
A slow breeding
Of external clutter
Surrounded by doubtful
Reminders
Of alternate outcomes
Before the rigour set in
When movement was
A joy to behold
Freedom of expression
Was embedded in
The constitution
Until the rising
As the earth turned
A carbon rich
Methane cocktail
Too hot for a cold compress
On your forehead
Standing before
A blank page
On an autocue
Leaving you speechless
Too late for sorry
Tell that to the children
Of the industrious
Revolution
Leaving you
Behind
With mouldy relics
Of a bygone age
When cash was king
Wheels were oiled
With greasy fingers
Fresh from the pie
And we who rose
To touch the sky
Should have known
Better.
