Arid

Your fields are monochrome faded

Blades of grass bleached by your treacherous bent

Paled petals loosened

Brittle branches fallen
Your fires have scorched the trees

Perilous gusts fanning

Rabbits tossed against barbed wire

Frenzied,wide eyed
Precious little can grow in your toxic soils

Where once I walked

Barefoot

  1. Honestly I couldn’t pay you to say nicer things (although I have a blank cheque here with your name on it, ready to send….). Thanks for making my day!
