I'm writing in sorrow

about loss, waste, and sheer stupidity

moistening this paper

with yet more angrily burning hot tears

for a planet being increasingly abused

whose end we hear knocking louder and louder on our door.

 

No, there will not always be another tomorrow

mornings will not be broken like the first morning

just broken-forever!

 

That once reminding breath of Eden

is choking on toxicities

no longer a remaining fragrance

for our aspirations

but a funereal whiff

of self-imposed annihilation.

 

 

◄ Come along now human vultures.....

Pillow prayer. ►

The sheer stupidity of humanity burying our heads in the sand and hoping a better tomorrow whilst we warm our hands on the burning bushes of today. We can be so short sighted.
It's a bit like saying to your children, " Ok, I've left you the house, but I've shit all over the floor! Is that ok?

More than likely Keith. Fingers crossed that they WILL go on breaking like the first morning, Devon. An old one Mindy yes and recorded, as you say by Cat Stevens ( who no longer goes by that name I believe ) along with quite a few other artists and has had seven bells knocked out of it by many a school choir along with many other choirs in its time. To the three of you, Jason and Lisa thank you. Jemima.

Haha, didn't see the reference there. That is an oldie.

"mornings will not be broken like the first morning" - stunning line, Jemima, in a straight-shooting political poem.

A powerful poem which illustrates the horrors which await future generations.

Well done and thank you

Keith
