Changing Times Poem by David Wood

Changing Times

Rating: 4.6

Polar bears vying for accommodation
Hanging their scarves over a crescent moon.
With cliffs of sea ice crashing down,
And ice melting into oceans clear.

Whale song echoing around the oceans
But their cry was a pleading cry for help
Haunting echo’s from the deep
But mankind turns a deaf ear.

Contrail lines causing deserts in
Sub-Sahara nights flying people to holidays.
Endless rain from autumn to spring amongst
The daffodils and crocuses.

Long hot summers, drought days
Endless. Heat strokes rise daily.
Politicians meandering words
Power play for big businesses.

Carbon trading, a trade off to nothing.
The worlds people a minor commodity.
The world turns to a new destiny,
A new cycle begins as money rules all.

Just a poem about the crime mankind is doing to this earth.

A betrayal that done everyday but yet no action replied....but time will come where the changing times will respond the consequences for each betrayal we did to our mother earth...We just need to respect mother, for mother earth too...because the loves she shared, a beautiful write David! _soul
