Eco - Warrior - Poem by Dominic Windram

Nature is on the brink of extinction.
I sense the darkness mocking creation.
I sense the suffering of innocent things
I lament the butterfly's broken wings.
Love's been sacrificed; the Lamb has been slain
On the altar of monetary gain.
I anticipate the days of fire & flood.
A burning anger flows within my blood.

    We hope for a better world. It is only hope. A hard hitting poem that shows the reality of human folly. Let me die before nature crashes! (Report)Reply

    Thanks Jane...I sincerely hope that things are rectified...although I don't reckon this is going to happen anytime soon!
