A poem - by Rosemary Holmes-Smith, Sechelt BC

Posted: Wed February 22, 2006
DESPERATION by Rosemary Holmes-Smith, Sechelt, B.C Were living in a world of faded dreams Clinging to our lifestyle to avoid the screams Of third world hunger, poverty and war, But all our actions are within the law. Now Kyotos down the drain Our planet is indeed in pain. The birds and beasts are going fast Fishing surely will not last. As glaciers melt, the penguins cry Remember us? and wonder why. We need clean water; we need clean air, Our present grade is only fair. As trees come down and end in smoke, Its really time we all awoke. Turn back the clock and slow the pace Of self destruction and the human race. Lets clean up the world; its not too late To change our thinking and change our fate. This poem has been accepted by the Poetry Institute of Canada for its 2006 publication.
