I wonder now what sin is worse
As we destroy this fragile earth
Who should we condemn the most? Who curse?
The careless or he who cares not for its worth?
When we misfile our plastic waste
Do we sin more than those who double wrap;
When we buy packaged goods in daily haste
Is it our fault we fall into the plastic trap?
And when we recycle those plastic trays

The Turning Of The Tide
… and the ocean’s spoke
in a voice of wrath and anger
that sounded like dark pebbles
rolling towards the shore
in a blood red tide,
‘You have given us your detritus
and so we return yours’.
And their tone
and their vengeance swift…
It started on a sunny day
with naked bodies basking
in warm August sun.
