The State of Things

We poison the well and wonder why

There is no drinking water in the tap.

We kill the bees and wonder why

There is no food on supermarket shelves.

We ravage the earth and wonder why

The floods and fires come.

We prise open the box and wonder why

Pandora's pandemics pour forth.

We close our eyes

And wonder who to blame.

We blame everybody else, sadly Hazel, including God.

Hazel,

A poem which confronts reality but sadly so many look the other way.
Thank you for this

Keith
