Is this gardening of the future???

 

Welcome to my atomic garden…
Not many visitors here.
Sit right down and have a plum
And lend to me your ear!
See how tall the plumb tree grew?
Plutonium rich the soil!
And you won’t find a single weed
With nuclear there’s no toil.
Note the size of the ripened fruit
Have you ever seen such bounty?
You’ll find fruit trees just like mine
Throughout contamination county!
The radiation won’t harm you,
At least that’s what they say,
Cause nuclear power plant meltdowns
Happen nearly every day!
It’s kind of like a Shangri-La
No one will ever age!
Gardens like mine are the future
For atomic energy’s the rage!

Well written Annabel. I have to agree with Felix, what have we done. I can't imagine what things will be like when my grandchildren are grown. May God bless you every day of your life.

Although I know this is written sort of tongue in cheek, it is sooo scary what our world is coming too and the path world leaders seem so eager to follow. I feel sometimes like I am an old man and it doesn't really matter anymore but then I look at my little grand children and think God...what have we done.

Annabel, you have skillfully crafted words for our time,
as we crawl into the mysterious and often disturbing tomorrow.

Annabel, Love the sarcasm! In the 60's many people
were against atomic energy...looks like we are heading
that way again.
Always,
Deborah

Oh boy. Here the garden's name is no longer Eden. Great write.

Did I detect a bit of cynicism in your poem, or was it just me?

Cheers,

Anna, this certainly gives us some "food for thought" which is what we all strive for, isn't it?

Nicely done, Thanks Dick

Bravely explores a compelling topic ~
I'm a fan of organic farming and this is well-crafted and rich in food for thought Anna!
Blessings,

Sad thoughts for the imaginary, but frightful possible future. I cannot even begin to think of how the people of Japan are coping with this tragedy .Great thoughtful poem, Anna.
Your friend, Mark

Hah! You can never tell. What at first doesn't kill you may surprise you in the end. I would like to have a crystal ball that would show the world (earth) five hundred years from this moment. Liked this poem, Anna.
