ramblings and things

1,019,795 poems read


In my dreams the sky is sombre,


The earth arid and lifeless and brown


Scorched and burnt and seared


By the acid rain pouring down.


Coasts have receded


As water has taken the land


New rolling seas where


There once was dessert sand.


All from a climate change 


That Nature began


But very quickly exacerbated


By the actions of man.


The lands are deserted


As man has moved on;


He has reached for the stars,


Packed his bags and gone.


There is life in the Oceans


A maternal soup where it teems


Perhaps in a hopeful  ending


To my strange dreams.


Maybe in a future millennium


In a long distant when


It will burst forth


And take the land again.


A very different Earth


With maybe a very different end,


The New Life not repeating


Old Life's self destructive trend.
