NATURE'S FURY


NATURE'S FURY
Melvin Banggollay


Nature is a wonder
full of serene scenery
we all love to wander
but when its serenity
is distured with power
of men's stupidity
to exploit and rape her
verdant breast of beauty
in their greed for power,
and desire for money,
She rises in full anger
to get even for our stupidity
in disturbing its serenity
by rolling great thunder
by pushing high tsunami
by exploding volcanoes
and shaking without mercy
this world with great power
to punish all humanity.

    Great write...I like your spin on this subject...Mother Nature has a mean streak in her if she feels she's being mistreated. Well done!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
