Blotworld


I know, the world is a blot.
Breeding, cruel hatreds and plot.
Some win, but most of us lose;
only the rich can live as they choose.

Some say, it's a base human fault.
In some way, always caught short.
One day, some wit will retort:
it's in the nature of gods
to play God for good sport.

I know, the world is a blot.
A greenhouse, uncommonly hot.
I go, about it a lot.
I've seen it ravaged as often as not.

I know, the world is a blot.
Oil wells, puncture and spot,
landscapes, of garbage and rot,
bleeding the planet and starting to clot.

I know, the world is a blot.
It goes, from the year dot.
Life dies, and we know squat;
we are as programmed as coins in a slot!

I know, the world is a blot.
Who cares, a whit or a jot?
Eden, has sure gone to pot!
What kind of future have we really got?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
