(733) Bubbleistic Future - Poem by Melvina Germain

Cast away living in a bubble,
Ir orbit around an endangered earth.
Lost among the skyhawks of futuristic power..
I’m sworn to take an oath.

To move unseen through portholes in chase.
Where eyes of an eagle sore deep dark space.
I live my life far away from home.
Protected, without fear, in a bubble I roam.

Man crushed the evergreens of earth.
Water contamination, no more rebirth.
I, with a chosen few,
see the earth from a different view.

    Melvina, not a pretty picture that you paint here. The erosion of our green planet is not a pretty one. We can only hope that the powers to be wake up and see what's being done before its too late. They make so many false promises with blinkers on. One day they will wake up and see what they have done, hopefully it will be soon. Top Marks my friend. Thanks for sharing it.
