Trying not to remember

Thirteenth of December.

Nothing to report.
no witty festive retort.
The world is still in crisis.
We aint fighting ISIS.
We are fighting each other
Corporate powers want blanket cover
Dissecting profits from our mother
They do not care for not us nor other
They seek to smother, our sisters and brothers
all these events bring on the fear
bring on the tears
dissolve my cheer

People are dying.
From starvation and greed.
Crippled from the inequity, down on our knees
We must rethink this system of need
And share our food, power, resources equally
Water is contaminated.
from land sea and sky
Our basic needs up for sale
to the man with pound signs in his eye
Oil leaking, burning, coating, the black slick slime of our decay
driving companies to harm everywhere, in every way, on every single sacred day.
all these events bring on the fear
bring on the tears
dissolve my cheer

The reefs are dead
toxic fish
oceans full of plastic
floating spoons and disposable dishes
the situation tragic
seismic blasting
illegal fishing
Maming sharks
all for the kitchen
eating creatures
their existence don’t feature
Everything driven to extinction
to enrich humanities taste bud
The humble bumble so at threat
Aint sure if its the point of no return yet
all these events bring on the fear
bring on the tears
dissolve my cheer

The land raped and ruined.
So are our people.
Poverty.
Hate crimes.
disrespected sacred lines.
Isolation.
systemic depression
inter connectivity under global suppression
repeating mistakes, not learning the lesson
On the brink to fuck up our own eco system
all these events bring on the fear
bring on the tears
dissolve my cheer
Particularly distressing at this time of year
All I can hope is we can help change the world next year.
