Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see #117

A serious reflection

i see our world as splitting up
coming apart at the seams
politics, pollution, people
tragedies galore

i don’t know how much longer
i can keep it together
teetering on the top of the world
looking down with grief

A funny take

I don’t know how much longer I can keep these two peaks together. My calf and thigh muscles are killing me! But I just can’t let the Earth split in two!

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge #212 – It’s new… does it mean it’s welcome?
& Eugenia’s Weekly Prompt – Chapter

another year
another chapter
it’s new… does it mean it’s welcome

… only if it brings us something better
what does better even mean
seems insurmountable

the division, the animosity, the inhumanity
politics, people, our ever-deteriorating climate
it’s not new… but some positive change would be welcome

Reblog – Old School

Excellent take on the current climate issues. Mother Nature will win.

The Twisting Tail

I’ve lived through plagues
Seen my fair share of crusades
I’m Old School comrades

I’ve seen ice ages come and go
Friend to mammoth and eskimo
I’m Old School bro

I saw the dinosaurs have their day
Until a meteor paved their way
I’m Old School compadre

I saw a land without fire
Without man’s desire
I’m Old School squire

I stood by in the time of the witch
Before humanity flipped the first switch
I’m Old School bitch

I knew the price before money
I recall the primordial ooze being runny
I’m Old School honey

I’ve seen what humans can create
And how it’s lead to the current state
I’m Old School mate

Like all before, I will survive your rule
I’m the earth, I’m nobodies fool
I’m forever, I’m Old School

Just Keep It Up

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 7/22/21 & Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Soaring

protestors up in arms fighting the good fight
light and air pollution
large garbage patches dotting our oceans
space debris circulating mother earth

astronauts soaring above looking down
witnessing it all, seeing clearly
most of the people residing here
lacking demonstrable empathy

the inhabitants shortsighting their future
i say let it burn
go further into destruction
finish the job

mother will heal when we are gone
