Easter approaches and daffodils bloom,
as we welcome the first signs of spring.
Unruly youths, behead natures good news,
'Its a destructive world we live in'!
As a nation faces, an increase in cases,
a deadly virus; threatening our own,
Health hazardous waste, a discarded disgrace,
"An irresponsible world!" we all moan
As fear takes hold and panic takes over,
and the selfish take more than they need,
discarded packaging of mindless marketing,
'A world consumed by gluttony & greed!
When austerity punishes, crime & addiction flourishes,
and suicide feels like a reasonable choice,
the evidence is clear, empty bottles and fear,
'Its an abusive world with no voice'!
With a lack of awareness and limited belief,
all hope, pride and respect become lost,
When we no longer care, about what we throw where,
'Its a world dearly paying the costs'!
But a country in lock-down, brings a glimmer of hope,
a rare opportunity to stop and reflect,
May we all re-emerge, with a conscious awareness,
and to a brave new world Reconnect!
