A CURSE ON OUR MOTHER EARTH




Please, visit the site for the poem. Text on Picture is not visible here.
NOTE: I wrote this poem on 31st January 2005* 14 years ago. Sir David Attenborough wrote this recently(2018):
Sir David Attenborough warns that humans are a plague on the Earth'
The 86*year*old broadcaster said the negative effects of climate change and population growth would cause disaster within the next 50 years.

He told the Radio Times: "It's coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change. It's sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now.

"We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia * that's what's happening. Too many people there. They can't support themselves * and it's not an inhuman thing to say. It's the case.

"Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a co*ordinated view about the planet, it's going to get worse and worse."

Sir David is a patron of the charity Population Matters, which aims to limit population growth through programmes such as contraception drives.

Ayin


I have done what is just and right,
Leave me not to my oppressors;
That the Lord judges in His sight,
Of those that are the transgressors.

Give your servant a pledge of good,
Let not insolent oppress me;
Doing only as the Lord would,
For advising in His decree.

My eyes long for His salvation,
Fulfilling His righteous judging;
In building a firm foundation,
Just and fair never begrudging.

He deals with His servant mercy,
According to His steadfast love;
As He teaches of His decree,
From His throne in Heaven above.

For I am His willing servant,
Who has given understanding;
Testimonies that are fervent,
Of all that He is commanding.

It is time for the Lord to act,
Because His Law has been broken;
Now He needs to make an impact,
On the blaspheme that is spoken.

His precepts I love more than gold,
More precious to me than silver;
For the judgments that will unfold,
Are looking on me with favor.

All His precepts considered right,
Never diverted a false way;
For they keep me within His light,
Keeping me from going astray.

!


O'er hill and o'er dale,
Hark the hunting horn's wail.
The chase is on, no time to waste,
Mount your steed, make all haste!

In valorous pursuit of the Glatisant beast,
O'ercoming all obstacles, from greatest to least!
Through forest primeval or chasm vast,
We'll hunt the beast till we catch it at last!

Body of a leopard, head and neck of a snake,
A most unusual noise it surely does make!
Barking like thirty couple hounds questing,
It surely kept King Pelinore from resting!

A glorious hunt, steeped in chivalrous tradition,
What ho! I hear it now, consign it to perdition!
galumphing 'cross the land on its hooves like a hart,
Arise sluggard, 'tis past the thou did start!

Sir Percival and sir Palamides hunted it too,
Now the great quest has passed on to you!
Gather thy weapons, thy trusty spear hone,
The Post*Vulgate de Merlin reveals all that is known.

Ride like the wind,chase down the foul beast,
We'll celebrate your triumph, with a victory feast!

Astonishing people


Astonishing people

She lay awake for quite some time,
So much disturbed her sleep tonight,
Four kids, no school, more lockdown rules,
No work, no money, short of food.

Endless fears, tormented mind,
How would they cope, could they survive?
She tossed and turned poor worried head,
And still she lay alone in bed.

Downstairs a head more used to graft,
On building sites and council flats,
But all that ceased some time ago,
Since then its hand outs, no furlough.

He waits and waits for news of work,
In dribs and drabs, a shovel’s worth,
But still it’s welcome, cash is king,
Buys milk and bread and basic things.

It’s been like this for weeks and weeks,
Short of food and short of sleep,
Short of reasons left to smile,
No park, no pub, can’t go outside.

A shadow moves beside the bed,
A gentle hand holds harder flesh,
At least they both got through the day,
And fight they will to stay that way.

Covid weary, no news yet,
Tunnel? Light? Who dares to guess?
A covid war much like the blitz,
Well, we won that, and we’ll win this.

DOWN IN THE DUMPS




DOWN IN THE DUMPS

Don`t you just hate it when you`re feeling down
The smile on your face is replaced with a frown
Today I am grounded my heart just can`t fly
For it`s in my boots and it`s not soaring high.

I don`t want to smile it would be easier to cry
I search my soul and I ask myself why
I want my brain to give me the solution
But it seems filled with nothing but pollution.

My thoughts stray to places I don`t want to go
Making me unhappy and feeling very low,
My mind leaves behind the logic that I know
And then the sadness just seems to grow.

I can`t let it win I just have to be strong
Down in the dumps is not where I belong,
So I will smile and stick by what I say
That after all tomorrow is another day.

No Flo Creepy Joe


You won't catch me
Going with the flow of
Loving creepy Joe
Seems the way to go
But no
You'll never catch me
Going with the flow
Cause I don't trust Joe no mo
Than I did his 45 lying predecessors

Beloved Inspiration


Beloved Inspiration

How inspiration can lead us to
a different world altogether.

No words to explain how it can be
our life's guide through the help of
our Heavenly Father.

Our inner voice speaks so softly, we
must be very aware to hear it.
It's like our super* consciousness speaking
words of advice, wisdom, answering
many questions, we have no answers
for.

A song, poem, music, creating something
from nothing, our inner voice speaks called
inspiration.

Do not forget to meditate!
Meditation comes from deep within, and
can calm a being of terror, to a being
of peace.

Let your mind travel far away and you shall be
inspired beyond compare.

(Inspiration lives within us all)
