Well Earned Punishment. - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Double sonnet

Cyclones, Typhoons and Hurricanes.
Storm surges and torrential rains.
Volcanoes, earthquakes and landslides
Dangers threaten from all sides.

Some unexpected thunder storms
Defying the accepted norms.
Lightning strikes fro a clear blue sky
Nobody knows the reason why.

Mother Nature appears to be.
Reminding us quite forcibly
That her patience is running out.
Unless we change there is no doubt.


She will decide the human race
Will disappear without a trace.

Mankind has chosen to ignore
The warnings that they've had before.
Men think they are entitled to
do anything they wish to do.

Their only motivation greed
They are unwilling to concede.
They use up what they can't renew
And aren't prepared to listen to.

Evidence which makes it plain.
They stand to lose more than they gain.
They are so blinded by their greed.
They do not recognise the need.

To change the way they choose to live.
If they do not they won't survive.
