Environmental Poetry

Brenda Bunting
By Brenda Bunting

Ocean seas weep oily tears,
Trees are stripped and raped each year,
Frogs hop to extinction land,
Where honey bees become their friends.

Is there clean air anywhere?
Like politicians really care,
Breaking into tiny grains,
Asphyxiating plastic remains.

Fecal matter reeking foul,
Multiplying billion bowels,
Men and animals eliminate waste,
At a rapid and unprecedented rate.

Contaminated corrupted the purity of seed,
Divinely given for all earth’s needs.
At the genetic level fools play god,
While living in the land of nod.

Evil experiments constantly revealed,
Human subjects on a gerbil wheel.
The sentence slowly comes to light,
As the doomed continue to fight.

The corrosive carriers are everywhere,
Transport across land, sea and air,
Pesticides, chemicals and black oil,
Seep into rivers, streams and soil.

Earth belches back and rebels strong,
With wind and water breaking on,
Men and beast and all alive
Will we continue live and thrive?
