The Community!

They lived in a small rural community

each were related

growing their own food blissfully free

proud of their labour

pure delight in what they had achieved

in one another believed!

 

Established when the land was colonised

many had perished here

during a long battle to secure the district

lush and green so fertile

until one day unnoticed high in the sky

an unmarked plane did fly!

 

Trails that at first seemed like vapour

but never faded away

as chemicals were being sprayed out

that fell onto those below

absorbed by the rich cultivated soil

where the families did toil!

 

Also breathed into the lungs of the folk

penetrating their cells

undetectable they were contaminated

every living creature

succumbed to the chemicals deployed

the community soon destroyed!

 

Unable to explain why crops withered

they became seriously ill

over a few months the area deserted

those pioneers now history

why never knew thought an act of god

did not think it was odd!

 

That from the open skies chemicals fell

turning paradise into hell!

Near A Fiery Star!

Amongst the green trees and electric pylons

major roads and hotels stand

in the once rural unspoilt countryside

when there was no traffic to speed

only imagining the peace beauty now lost

at natures mighty cost!

 

Skies above once unpolluted with chemicals

no man-made flying craft

clouds move across the darkening future

another bad summer ebbs away

as human lives slip by almost unnoticed

our reality could be easily missed!

 

Relaxing in a quiet place where fields once lay

as man dominates more land

greed of the few causes problems for the many

where love and respects gone

envy violence does engulf the passing bystander

just wanting to peacefully meander!

 

Always at risk from human stupidity and blunders

many living in constant fear

spirituality is weak the communications lacking

between cultures where’s the humanity

sitting here where once open meadows existed

fresh unspoilt life where man coexisted!

 

There must come a point when mankind goes too far

on a small planet near a fiery star!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
