No sanctuary in this bleak midwinter

Standard

The chiaroscuro clouds gathered over head, menacing and ominous bringing with it death, we sank to our knees in supplication to appease this deadly, winter of extinction and disease, if the environmental bite back, nature showed it’s fierce teeth and that has handed down to us the extinction of humanity, and as we kneel here in the toxic snow looking for sanctuary, bitter winter gnaws at us deep and there is no release, we did no heed the messages, we did not heed the signs, something wicked this way came and it brutalised our minds, now huddled in the darkness under ferocious skies, the sun no longer shines here and all we hear are cries, of innocent people, the whole of our mankind but some are not so innocent, they thought we had more time, and where now are our God’s and all our masters fled, but we saw them laying in the fields dying from sores from which they bled, nature showed it could be unforgiving as it released s brutal disease, and spewed for volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that brought us to our knees, and all the crops failed in the fields then washed away by tsunamis, this time we find now it’s our time to bleed and in this bleak midwinter we will find no sanctuary, and in this hour of greatest need we found ourselves on our knees but there is no salvation for our extinction Evan now not ever be appeased, so it’s the end of our humanity.

No forgiveness

Standard

There will be no forgiveness for the extinction that we caused

Due to a lack of harmony between humans, nature and animals,

There will be a final reckoning and though we should shoulder the blame

This is not the way it will go down, well scream and argue without shame

Acting like it’s not our fault it was everybody else

Black or white, left or right wing or a Christian or Muslim thing,

We never saw the wisdom in reducing down pollution

That may clean green energy from renewable resources,

Was a better path to take for insisting on travelling by planes and cars so far,

And learning to find a way to deal with all the waste that we create

Then there’s over population and ever increasing globalization,

Maybe clearing forests and destroying other species habitats was really not ok,

And meanwhile humanity glorified at it magnificent technological display,

That highlighted and put in center stage mankind’s ignorance in every way,

And no, there’ll be no forgiveness but the sad thing is no one will share or care,

They’ll fight each other until their final breath

While the rest of us stand back and just dumbfounded stare at their ability to hate until the bitter end,

But if we find the balance and harmony a way may just be found,

Out of the atmosphere of fear, to create a new path to new world and with finally clean air clean sea,

And a overriding opportunity to revive ourselves in a hope we can survive.

Healthy eating

Standard

Why is it the healthier we try to eat

Like going vegan or organic,

The prices rise existentially

Taking the choice often away from you and me,

Why is it they want to exploit the healthy foods we want to eat

Is it simply just greed or is systematically,

They just don’t want us being healthy

The rich eat the finest products that they demand,

We eat processed shit out of boxes and cans,

Or that’s irradiated or stuff like chlorinated chicken

GM food will one day see us stricken,

Down with the chemicals and unnatural stuff of which it’s created

But it’s served up for us and plated,

But does anybody really know if it is safe yet,

But the healthier to option the higher the price

Corporations don’t give a shit about yours and my life,

Corporations are simply parasites,

Living and sucking off of you and me

Draining us dry in the name of getting wealthy,

I guess the best way is plant and grow your own

If you got the time which most of us don’t,

I wish I could plant and grow my own society,

Because if I could it would focus on what’s healthy,

Not for my pocket but for mine and everyone else’s body

Or we could as a united people protest and lobby,

For better food at reasonable prices

Where corporations don’t get the bigger slices,

Of the money being made from the sale of healthier food.

Warning signs ushered in this year

Standard

What a year so far, bush fires in Australia and the US, burn nature burns at its own behest, floods in Jakarta, overwhelming villages, drown, nature drowns, what will happen next. Forty nine, Volcanic eruptions, the biggest one in Taal in the Philippines, roar nature roars, settling a few old scores. The rising seas from The Arctic ensure coastal shorelines get a battering, wave after wave, nature keeps its happening, then suddenly out of nowhere, a virus nobody could predict, Covid-19 nature’s biggest warning yet. Do we not get the message, do we not understand, there’s a message there from nature crossing every ocean, every land, are we so ignorant and arrogant we cannot hear nature’s words, symbolised in big events that effect each country around the world. It’s warning us of things to come, more powerful and destructive than we can know, telling, and it’s telling us to change our ways, before the final show, for nature can and will bring down the curtain on all humanity, if we don’t change our lifestyles, if we remain to blind to see. Do where we go from here right now is totally down to us, learn to live and nurture this earth and earn nature’s trust, or carry on exploiting it for power, money greed, and see how nature shows us the deadly seeds we sow, will end in the extinction that we will surely reap. You may call this alarmist, and you can call it fear mongering, but in the end it’s neither of these things but a sign of what is happening. Yes you can ridicule this, and call it and me what you like, but at the end of days when you’ve refused to see the light I’ll simply smile. But there is still time to bring about a change, a chance to save our souls but each of us must choose to become a climate change hero.

Consume

Standard

Consume the body

To let the spirit live

Consume the mind

So we can consciously forgive

The actions of our brutal existence

Existentially persistent

We of mindless actions be

Hater, fighter and bully

We of little or no respect

For environment

Or for other species

Consuming all we can through greed

We are the virus seed

Polluting all we touch and see

Poisoning the very air we breathe

Some mankind, some humanity

Cannot see or believe

The root of the problem is human beings

Speaking, acting without feelings

Consume, consume

Like the locusts we are

Stripping all wide and far

Consume the body let the spirit free

Consume the mind and live consciously

In a state of awareness existentially

Or consume the last of everything

And the taste the flavour of self extinction.

The inexplicable truth

Standard

The inexplicable truth

Is that we are small,

Compared to nature

We are nothing at all,

We cower in the face of its strength and power

This planet on which we live,

Is not solely ours

To mess up to exploit and destroy

Which is why we must learn to employ,

Much better environmental policies

Nurture it’s resources, not act out of greed,

Or it will comeback and bite us hard,

No more time can be wasted

It’s time to make a real start,

Using our knowledge of renewable energies

And stop acting like a disease,

Infecting this earth with our ignorant ways

That may bring about the end of days.

Expanding populations

Standard

Expanding populations
Leading to global annihilation,
Expanding into animal habitats
Building on environment which is bad for that,
Concrete structures are eyesores
Filled with greedy consumers
Who keep demanding more,
Caring not one jot
About earth’s nature, we’ve lost the plot,
Taking through exploitation
Never nurturing and so foresaking,
The balance needed to survive
All species have a God given right,
To not face certain extinction
But we’re like parasites
Feeding on a host, this earth we keep on bleeding,
Like a virus we keep diseasing
Everything that we’ve been gifted,
We need a moment of paradigm shifting
To bring a change to how we live,
And learn to control our increasing birth rate
So that the future generations will discover to late,
That this place in which we live
Cannot sustain us taking everything.
