Catastrophe Poem by Anthony Weir


Flowers are flowering
Larks are larking
Badgers badgering
Pines are pining
Rushes rushing
Fish are fishing
Plants are planting
Swallows swallowing
Stars are starring
The moon is mooning

And man is manning
Everything.

    You already miss the planet - sensible enough, well-supported by science. And I loved the last line. The future robs the present, as the present robs the future. (Report) Reply
