Mother Earth Suffers

I weep for Mother Earth as I watch the pain she suffers.
I weep for Mankind as we refuse to provide the buffers
From climate change brought about by we fools
From pollution and using poisonous fossil fuels.

Mother Earth shudders, She cries out in pain,
She sends tornadoes to kill hidden in the rain.
Elsewhere she gives her mantle a mighty shake
And huge cities can do naught but die in the quake.

She rends her surface beneath the seas
Sending tidal waves to bring death and disease
Destroying coastal cities as Her reminder to Man
That He is merely mortal and destroy Him She can.

And precious She alive for billions of years
Sees Her Death at the hands of Man's fears
That could spark the nuclear holocaust
Bringing Her the deathly illness She fears most.

So now Mother Earth reaches out to Man
To warn Him of the destruction She plans
Sign after sign She sends to signal us
That She can and will end all things if She must.

For She knows that She shall always remain
And can rebuild Herself again and again
As She remakes Herself, strengthens Herself,
And renews Herself to prepare for life's health.

I have written for other blog sites, my favorite being VidiotSpeak…

…and I will forever be grateful to all the fine people with whom I still write.

I was disabled by a vicious pair of cancers caused by exposure to Agent Orange from a stint I did in Vietnam. I think that, plus the dreadfully destructive and vile political scene that now exists to benefit only the rich and to do so by making America a third rate banana republic filled with a permanent lower class of citizens lacking the power to stop our 'political elite' and their corporate masters no longer provokes anger, just the heartache of watching our formerly great country devolve at an ever faster rate.

So I have to stop writing of politics for now and seek to further explore a mind, mine, almost destroyed by years of suffering chronic pain, panic attacks, and depression too deep to describe.

As I learn my way around this attempt to have a kinder, gentler blog site I hope to allow everyone or anyone who also seeks an avenue for expressions of their thoughts to post here. The only rule will be no name-calling, insults, profanity, or ad hominem attacks.

So there, that's my first post here; it will not be my last.
