'Nuff said......


Beaches barren and empty,
Forests dark and still,
Nothing stirs upon the land,
And nothing ever will!
Air thick and acrid,
Soil toxic and dry,
No clean water anymore,
And none to question “why”?
There are no Polar Ice Caps,
Now the oceans rule,
But nothing lives within them,
For they’re infected with fuel!
They thought it would last forever,
Progress was their excuse,
Now they’re extinct and good riddance,
Payback for the abuse!
The green planet will revive itself,
Although it’s in for a fight!
And life will once again flourish,
Without the human blight!

Dark, stark and prophetic; one can only hope mankind will awaken in time but as each year goes by, doubts increase. Nicely doen, Annabel. Love and best wishes,
