The sky will last forever
The clouds are temporary
In a 100 years from now
What remains will be a poisoned sea


Some will call it tragic
When the sea puts on its show for free
Just rotting fish and plastic
A becalmed toxic destiny

folkestone sky

Idiots and profiteers
Sit back and watch it on TV
The carcasses of whales
The cloak of everlasting synthetic debris

clouds dover (2)

It’s already far too late to save
The art of sky and clouds and sea
Maybe you’ll have a picture on the wall
Of nature’s old days creativity

dover harbour

Now we play the end game
Though blind fools will disagree
That once a long, long time ago
All of life on Earth crawled out of the sea

  1. A very frightening future , written with profound insight , evoking frightful thoughts of what is really going to befall mankind if he doesn’t wisen up.
    Your poetry needs to become a mantra for people in power , good advise for people who should read and get their act together.

    1. Thanks Shey. We all know the problem, experts know the solution. Governments need to show some bravery and ‘get it done’ for the planet, not ‘get it done’ for the benefit of a fat liar in the case of the UK.

      1. Humans, for the most part, are shortsighted. We look for ways to make life better right now with no regard for future generations. Greed is at the root of it all. Good piece, by the way.

    1. I hope not as well. I watched a doc re The Great Barrier Reef and how it’s in danger the other night. It’s one of those things that makes us all worry and end up feeling helpless. Anyhow, I agree, ‘I hope not’. I just sent you an email, by the way ~ George
