Collapsing world

Collapsing world


Isn`t odd the world is on the brink of collapse

yet more airports are built sometimes at unlikely places

to get the swarm of tourism in.

It is ok for a traveller to walk in the streets of Paris but

not leave trash at the foot of Himalaya and plastic bags

spoiling beaches.

There was a noise on the balcony a big seabird had

collided with glass partition of the railing the bird

suffered a bent beak but was otherwise looking fine

if a bit shocked; of course it could no longer feed and

slowly starved to death.

A warning to us who fail to see the looming breakdown

of our world

It is not just air travel I fear there has been talk of too many cars and lorries on the road very often making unimportant journeys
Nice one Jan

I'm reminded of the ascerbic words from Noel Coward - privileged
to write from a world when the pace of life was much slower and
its expectations accordingly lower.
"Why do the worst people go travelling and the best stay at home?"
(It hasn't been lost on me just often the word "holiday" comes up
when people are asked what they would choose in TV competitions).

Heading for oblivion, but with faster and faster ways to get there!

Your opening line Jan is a very bold statement...unless it is similar to the biblical '6 days' i.e. not meant to be taken literally.
