Chasing The Wind Poem by David Wood

Chasing The Wind

Rating: 4.8

No matter how hard we tried
We couldn't stop their use
Despite all that had died
By such an evil abuse.

They wouldn't read the facts
They said we were all wrong
So they continue their evil acts
As they sing the same old song.

Battling local authority to ban glyphosates failed again despite all the reports in our favour. The UK has lost 60% of insects, including pollinators, since 1980.

You are writing about insects. This poem can also apply to the ‘gun rights' in America. Excellent poem.

I took the title of this poem Chasing the Wind from Ecclesiastes 2: 10-11as it seems s hard, almost meaningless, to fight authorities as they are so elusive regarding things that should be banned like glyphosates, or even gun laws as someone pointed out.
