Daily missive for Tuesday the 15th of October. ~ A climate of change ~ by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 15th of October.

A climate of change

Stand together
Save the world
Bring it back
From extinction
Strip away the layers
Of burnt offerings
A Millennium of
Atomic number six
Six?
Six?
Clogging its lungs
With a lack of irony
Let it breathe
Before extermination
Is complete
The hot crust
Devoid of cultivation
Once upon a garden
So terribly transformed
The hospitable
Become hostile
Where good intention
Has been forgot
A promised land
Now stolen
A future bartered
In profit
Where loss
Is more than financial
Ruin less dramatic
Than the true
Cost of termination
Unless we retreat
From the precipice
The earth beneath
Our feet
Will disintegrate
In the heat
Until nothing remains
Of Man’s domain
At all,
But a record
Of the fall.
