Short Pollution poem by RUDOLPH RINALDI| Details | |

I sit on my chair and travel the world
I turn off my TV 
And cry

It is hard to foul air
in a sleeping bear's lair.

burning plants and charring skin
clear scorching heat
no protective pollution
manmade brown insulation

Nature's First Law

Self-destructive Man
Violates Nature's prime law:
Don't shit where you eat!

Short Pollution poem by M. L. Kiser| Details | |

The Squawker

Squawking all the day; cackling hen, ruler of the roost. 
The others chit-chat; gossiping chickens having a party.
Cackler disagrees with all that’s being said and is ignored.

Short Pollution poem by Robert Sturgill| Details | |

Boulevard, USA

Fluorescent signs shout
     "Liquor" and "XXX,"
cardboard boxes
     hold the land hostage,
pushers and prostitutes
     pirouette
with survival
     their only choreographer.

Short Pollution poem by Franklin Price| Details | |

In DC

In DC
By Franklin Price
4/6/2015

In DC the House and the Senate
Our confidence they cannot win it
They don't try as they might
They just fuss and they fight
Our country to hell try to send it

Short Pollution poem by RUDOLPH RINALDI| Details | |

I am sitting inside my smart TV set with my wireless remote control

I am sitting inside my smart TV set 
with my wireless remote control 
and I can’t seem to get my wireless remote control 
to work for me
can someone out there 
please keep on  changing the channels for me 
to something else

My Missing Quilt

Oh my, I'm suffering from wind I just wish my body would rescind For my quilt I do probe It's on top of my wardrobe Out of reach and totally pinned . Inspired by Jan Allison's Poem 'The Real Gods of Wind'

Mutilation

    Credo of nature’s mutilation;
           Height ot man’s desperation:
                            Nature’s blood flows -
                                   Man’s repeated blows:
                                        Niger’s delta crude pollution.


Short Pollution poem by M. L. Kiser| Details | |

Dark Destiny

I have seen you on the 
Winds of change;
Reigning in tightly 
the future’s course.

Life is a playground.
Your games tough,
cold and soulless.

At the crack of
Your whip, deaths’ hunger is appeased;
Earths skin is torn asunder and death is free
to dine on her naked breasts.

Short Pollution poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details | |

To Do List

I've a million things to do today:
Like save the world, and cure the sick,
Feed the starved, and free the Slaves-
Sustain the Poor, my stars predict!
A home for all, the naked clothed,
And make the water clean to drink
I bring them Peace, and save their Soul;
I do, I do! Just ask my Shrink!

Short Pollution poem by richard ferry| Details | |

Pardon Me

Pardon me        Did you just         A foul smell penetrated my senses         No where to hide       Just smile and bear it         No idea what you mean       Thank God        The sermon was almost over        Fresh air at last         Great sermon Father        See you next Sunday                   FOR CONTEST

Short Pollution poem by Amy Green| Details | |

Your Sickness

Where's the zeal in being a zealot?
Single minded entities always
Forcing, pushing, constantly attack.
Keep your sick. altered, mechanistic
Ideals far away from me.

Thanks but no, I can think for myself,
No need for your help
Feels like the Crusades- believe or die
Look and see  I’ll never be
Your brainwashed puppet

Short Pollution poem by Judith Palmer| Details | |

Mother Earth

Reconcile me with Mother Earth

The milk and honey of our existence

From which we came and will return

Let me feel the spiky greenness

Of wild grasses

Bowing before the wind

Allow me to sigh in ecstacy

Of nature in it's essence

Without a blur of cities, or

Blush of smog

To smear our tomorrow's.

Short Pollution poem by Christopher Meyer| Details | |

Hypnotic Pollution

Sitting on the clouds
I feel like flying
Above strawberry fields
I feel like crying

Some feelings I got
Something big is about to happen
Blowin over the heirs 
Just to get to the kickoff

Like a magician
Flipin cards 
Disappearing when the fields come
Everybody knows

This is survival of the fittest




Short Pollution poem by RUDOLPH RINALDI| Details | |

No one suffered or was killed today

No one suffered or was killed today
No one raped or burned alive
No terrorists
No politicians
No exploitation 
No pollution
No religion
No rich and 
no poor

there is something 
nice and peaceful
about having 
No people  
living on my PLANET
all being 
elsewhere
with their baggage 
full of delusions




Short Pollution poem by Litan Dey| Details | |

Me Bad

I was thinking to tell you
For a long time
The word that will bore you
But i couldn't
Embarrassment
Sweating
Smiling lips
Your true and fool heart stops me.
It bothers me
I can't sleep
Today i must say this
Please! don't mind
Don't think me bad
I'm saying from my core feelings that
Today is very cold!
Don't go outside......

Short Pollution poem by Leslie Philibert| Details | |

Fracking

And when the earth
Is ill with shale
Each day will blister
From a pitch-dark shadow

All the drops that save us
Will be abused
So we the dogs
Can eviscerate all that is holy

We have stolen the
Voices from gravel
And grass and sand
As if they cannot suffer

Because we have
Not earned this place
We have not earned this place

Short Pollution poem by David Bankson| Details | |

The Death Toll

We lit the flame, and together, we knew.
On cue we scorn loss, instead trading blame.
A vicious social trap that saps those few
Who elect to be leeches and remain the same.
The kings we serve refuse to conserve,
Choosing a fate of carnage and worthless acclaim.
But if this planet is to be preserved
We must break the cycle of the zero-sum game.

Short Pollution poem by theresa stephens| Details | |

Pollution

To mill pond at dawn's new day

rippling sunbeams over the calm surface play
freely amongst the stately swans gliding there
in contented pairings, turning sees' a hare
and leveret munching on borage and honeycombs
breakfasting, as a polluted tributory stream foams
with poisonous effluence five hundred yards away

to mill pond at dawn's new day

Short Pollution poem by Gerald Nforche| Details | |

Africa for Sale

Feel the privatization in its might
A bullet in the African soul-
The sectors sold
The branches squared.

Our pride dwindles
When our Africa is slowly auctioned
To forces of stealth
Ruiners of our democracy.

Our masters slowly gather the spilled milk
Stride by stride
Grinning at the auction table
Their eyes glued on the politician’s billboard:
AFRICA FOR SALE.
