WHERE HAVE ALL THE RAINBOWS GONE?

george folkestone (2)

(Above, me having a think about lost rainbows, all the time taking care not to fall off the edge of the cliff into a watery grave)

WHERE HAVE ALL THE RAINBOWS GONE?

On the day the Ice Caps melted

The sun swallowed a swollen sea

No rain from Africa to Eurasia

No springtime blossom on the Cherry Tree

 

The wheat, the maize, the grains dried and died

No more the rainforest of the Amazon

The last human left alive looks up

Says, ‘Where have all the rainbows gone?’

 

My song is not a warning

Believe it, it’s far too late

Mankind’s ways of greed and war

Has defined Mankind’s death wish fate

 

Rainbow’s End will stay a secret

For forever and a day

“Where have all the rainbows gone?”

The last thing the last human will get to say

 

Time for something a little brighter; something with ‘magic’ in it – my song ‘Rexie Believes in Magic’. I hope you like it;

The ‘Dream Rescuer’ album from which this song comes from is available for download at https://zoolon.bandcamp.com/

Next the genius that is Agnes Obel with her song ‘Riverside’.  The mood of the piano is a work of art in itself;

      Thank you. Agnes Obel if you haven’t heard her work before is a genius.

      1. I will check her out more, thanks for sharing! (I like your stuff as much 🙂 )

      Thank you. I think I’ll have to stop following the news re the environment. It gets to you in the end.

      1. It’s a rather depressing thing. We

    Yeah! Lord Zoolon, this is a little different way of commenting, I think. Oh! that comment button next to the like button was more comfortable.

      I’m glad you found it Lady Yasmin.

    Sad but true.

      Thank you. It certainly is.

      Thank you Cathleen. I think it’s ruined.

    Didn’t notice the vanishing rainbows…too busy staring at our phones!

    1. Zoolon says:

      That’s true. It’s like watching pinball without the ball seeing them all bumping into each other and innocent inanimate objects.

      1. eurobrat says:

        Sadness!

      I should have added that ‘Where Have All The Rainbows Gone’ did become a song on the new album on Bandcamp. Here’s the Soundcloud one https://soundcloud.com/zoolon/rainbows-end
