Is it me standing on my head, or is it the world upside-down?

Silent cries of babies dying pierce my ears

Deformed infants born, a nightmare called “life”

Corpses of bleeding whales paint the ocean pink

Lifeless grey trees, trunks chopped and dry

Bees falling dead “we don’t know why!”

Breathless sweet dolphins scattered by the seashore

Heavy nights descend like bricks

Hidden hands tighten around my neck

I’m breathing mud I’m breathing sand

Is it just me standing on my head?

Or is everything around upside-down?

Destruction… “conquest” of nature

Radioactive waste… praised as achievement

Robbery in broad day light… a “Historic Achievement”

Progress… a family is no longer mum and dad

Liberty… measured in nudity per cm², put on display

Civilisation…  how many weapons  a nation could amass

Science… a tool of annihilation and a mushroom cloud

Charity… bailout of bankers adding to the trillions in their “empty” coffers

If we don’t give them that, our world would collapse… yes, collapse

Economy… snatching the last piece of bread from a hungry destitute

Financial growth… interest goes up and up, while life goes down

Security… watching every move, recording every word, just to keep us “safe”

Technology… counting every breath, monitoring every dream only just in case

Defence…  watch out, every blink of an eye might be a “secret code”,

 Every social gathering could be a “sleeping cell”, call 999 only just in case

O dear Beloved God

How could such a small heart

Take all this pain

All I want to be

Is a flower

or leaf in a tree

Hide forever

Where no one could see

Look up into Heaven

Smile at flying angels

As they smile at me

  3. So touching and so searing, laying bare the dirt and grit of civillisation. The Earth and its humane inhabitants are crying out to go back to nature and only what is natural. But first the inhumane must be cured..cured of their addictions to Ego, greed and power.
