Easter approaches and daffodils bloom,
we welcome the first signs of spring,
Unruly youths, crush natures good news,
'Its a destructive world we live in'!
As a nation faces,
a rise in new cases,
a deadly virus threatens our Kin,
Health hazardous waste,
a discarded disgrace,
'An irresponsible world we live in'!
As fear takes hold and panic takes over,
and the selfish take more than they need,
The discarded packaging of mindless marketing,
'In a world full of gluttony & greed!
When austerity punishes,
crime & addiction flourishes,
suicide feels like a reasonable choice!
the evidence clear, empty bottles and fear,
Its an abusive world with no voice'!
A lack of concern and limited belief,
all hope, pride and respect are lost,
When we no longer care,
about what we throw where,
'Its a world dearly paying the costs'!
A country in lock-down, brings a glimmer of hope,
an opportunity to stop and reflect,
May we re-emerge, to a healing Earth,
and to a brave new world Reconnect!
