Look What You Did...

By 1_million_Sloths

You got us into this mess
Our futures are unravelling
Under the sea bits of plastic 

Running after us as we scatter away

Get us to safety
Everywhere is hell
Nowhere is safe from these tiny plastic cells 

Entering the gates to this whole new place
Rushing to another place, just to find it’s all the same 

And none of us can call it earth without a hesitation 

Tundras of floating horrors
In the ocean and on land
On the buildings in our lungs
Never above us has such horror hung

Rest assured we will be saved
Untying the bloodstained wool
In the end we notice these are only myths 

Never will such fate occur
Even in the last minute
Do you notice this is all your fault

Oh woe, oh please
Ushering the human race into a volcano 

Relying on our last scraps of food

For the only way we can stop this future is if you stop it now 

Underneath all this pain we have to tell our children
The amounts you consume, about how you killed our souls 

Under the horrors there's more misery

Rest in peace to Mother Nature 

Everyone will soon be dead

Sorry that you have to reuse objects, but it’s the least that you can do 

Oh please oh please because we are relying on you.

Nowhere to run to

On this horrible planet
Wow, how the aliens laugh at us for what we did to the galaxy, we are eyesores

We try hard to survive, you just need to give one pound 

Even for a plastic bag because this futures mad

 

Never even trying
Even for their future grandchildren
Even though they have to grow up in a world 

Done for and in deep regret

 

To the past is all you think about, never for the future 

Oh the pain in this place that you used to call earth

 

Flogged across the head with shock
In the future with a rock
Xentoblasts stabbing you through the heart

 

In the future this is life,
Today is the day you increase the fight.

Lighthouse Keeping

hush

don’t speak

let the sand Wash over your feet

like the waves that crash and the shores complete

with beauty where land and ocean meet

a locked Embrace of nature’s love

 

hush

don’t look

just feel the breeze as it Softly shook

The maiden up high in the Lighthouse nook

where she Laughs for the ones that the seas ne’er took

for they envy her so

 

Hush

don’t leave

for the wAter it calls you, it tumbles and weaVes

through minds of mountains as they disbelieve

this stolEn promise, the maiden deceives

when you turn your back, as you will

hush 

don’t cry

just sTare at the blissfully ignorant sky

as the sun beams down to that lighthouse high 

where the Maiden watches the waves pass by

parades of blue, Enthralling

 

hush

stay still

if you look away once it Will suffer until

you have nothing but memories, threat, thought and thrill

as the maiden, shE falls, no intention to kill

but she did, and the sea died with her

hush

keep away

for the ocean Calm only keeps you at bay

as its thrAll on the maiden, day after day

will Never be different, she peacefully lay

her blood taints the waves in death

 

wait

come hither

for the fool near the ocean would stumble and Dither

as the maiden lies empty, her life slowly withers

mOther earth sees her, and takes pity prisoner

and saw her, as she was

 

for the maiden was earth, jusT like her, just the same

but she could do nothing, her dying breath came

and oil and gas and tHe final refrain

saw the ocean turn black, with the sick twisted game

of paper currencies and mad power schemes

but hush

there’s Still time

When your bones go numb

I know         how to stop time. 

watch your troubles dispel

as your thoughts turn sublime 

 

bow your head

and see a white horse

tenderly kiss

celestial shores. 

 

sporadic moments

of sheer bliss

when she ventures out further.

Lulled into her abyss. 

 

soon you are cocooned

by an icy elixir

that glazes your skin

with balmy whispers

 

and when your bones are numb 

time does stop.

So bow your head

and see this white horse.

Damn the toothpastes finished

By Olive Hosker

Washed it out

Watched the little beads go down the sink

Heard them wash away

Down they went into the sewer

Out they went into the rivers

Out they went into the oceans, floating there forever

Until the fish came and gulped them down,

There the beads sat, fizzing but not budging

And then the fish went back to his friends

They swam some more

They came to a river and swam upstream

They jumped and wriggled in

And then the claw went in the fish and into the jaw of the bear

The little beads (remember those) settled in the bears stomach

The bear curled up for the longest hibernation of them all

Damn the toothpastes finished.

Have something to share with us?
