Death of a Planet
A Planet of Death
- Ode To A Child
Poetical thought of what the Earth may think about humans pollution of the planet.
We can grow old gracefully or with charm
But the Earth is aging with great alarm.
Its surface is being ravished and mined
Its natural beauty, being undermined.
Taking oil and minerals makes no sense
Even taking wood, making forests less dense.
Global warming is a sin we inherited
That doesn’t mean that it is merited.
God created us with our hunger and thirst
But he began with Earth and that must come first.
It’s not ours just loaned to us in trust
Our preservation of it is a must.
Global warming is planetary suicide
Its continuance is for us to decide.
Kyoto and Doha were all in vain
The Governments won’t stop our planets pain.
We must tell our leaders to just stop and feel
It’s within their powers to help the Earth heal.
We must play our role in Earths salvation
Globally or even just as a nation.
The Earths demise will bring us all our death
But how it dies will be our epitaph.
- Whose Concern Is It?
Whose concern is it? If I am getting old and wear my grey hair with pride I’ve met too many, who in their prime have died.
- Gods' Wealth
A poetical look at how to share in God's wealth.
- Too Young to Die
Why do the young always die in wars? If the politicians had to fight, would they be so anxious to get involved?
- Xmas Time
Christmas means joy and happiness, but can also mean worries and debt.
