Premium Member OUR MADNESS
I shut my eyes and hope it goes away.

The ice-sheet meltdown is just one effect.

In the sea he hides lots of his waste
and some he landfills with much haste.
Nature's sick of his trash;
she prepares her backlash.
With big trouble soon he'll be faced.

In the air he dumps see-o-two gas 
and now it is coming to...Read More

other than I, and I say that sadly.
I see money for what it truly is, just a tool to control everybody,

he loved her so

What sin we now commit
in pursuit of profit.
With never ending growth
we plunder planet earth.

Where are we heading for 
when nature we ignore

that our greed now has built
desire for endless...Read More

A tortoise-shell cat and a calico,
Walked to the riverfront way below.
One named Curly. The other named Moe.
Spaceship nabbed them with a curious glow.

Curly taught the aliens how to sew.
They went to a planet alive with snow.
Given a gorgeously furnished chateau,

So cultured, they!
Humility an unknown virtue.
Their family kept at bay!

cavernous hammock.
No location,
only a prodding
to respond to the dark.

It is my parents calling
from a Bakelite planet;
I imagine retracing a long flex

'hello mum, hi dad' -
