Earthsense


Earthsense

 

Let Earth burn, explode, become past tense

Tottering under the onslaught  of violence

Let soulless bodies gently slide

into the cosmic chasm, deep and wide.

 

Gun-toting youth, ships fallen to pirates

Rain of death on a wedding stage.

Game of blame, a talk-show, a threat

Yeah, anything to grab a piece of fame.

Writhing lives, infernal mines

Sorry images, sordid love loops.

Milk every  tear of an unlucky survivor

yoke the stories, get the big scoop.

Hold fast to power, it’s a tiger’s tail

A tsunami, a Katrina to divert, to regale.

A breaking story, soon a deleted mail

Text, tweet till the battery fails.

Be the leader, be the first

to lose our humanity,  to curb our heart.

Illuminate our houses, darken the globe,

they are giving it free, so let’s fight for more.

 

On and on till we succeed

in mirroring the fate of the dinosaur.

Stop! think!

Do we want any more?

 

Death shrouds bomb blasts, yet we will take the train.

If the roof is blown away, let’s party in the rain .

Mend broken bridges, pull down the barbed fence

Better late than never, to make humble amends.

Nothing to lose, if we can all earn our bread.

And refrain from shedding a fellow being’s blood.

Leave the killing to the beasts of prey

Follow our hearts, let nature lead the way.

 

Let soulful music gently glide

Across the love’s oceans, deep and wide.

Live life  with a pinch of common sense

lest our Earth burn , explode, become past tense.

  1. We sure don’t want anymore, but that’s me and you and some other ordinary little creatures … I won’t be surprised if the past tense of the Earth comes soon … Food for thought here Reena! Agree with all!
