Sunday Poetry: E


I'm sick of the corruption
The fighting and wars
I just want some peace for my children who
Will walk along these shores
Why can't we just be?
We can't live happily
Our kids won't soon forget
All the devastation
All those who wept
The shores are littered
For what?
For cash?
We burn, we burn, we burn
Yet people never learn
We are polluting let and right
There is no end in sight
What happened to compassion
Understanding and trust?
What happened to all the good things which
Have been left out to rust?
I cry for my generation
This overly consuming nation
We need to do something
Before we end up with
