A Poem by andrew mitchell

Nature has a time schedule
Which must remain that way,
So survival of the fittest
Is just nature's way.
So its safety in numbers,
Look out if you stray;
you could be next on nature's prey.
For nature has a food quota
Which must be met
And if she finds you solitary
Your time could be spent.
Her methods can be callous, 
Selections to be set
For she controls the kingdom
And the balance must be kept.

I agree my friends. I saw the Honduras coastline and I saw New Orleans. When Mother Nature is raising hell. No stopping her. Thank you Andrew for sharing the logical and amazing poetry.

No rush my friend. I'm on vacation. Time for me to catch-up and write. You are welcome Andrew.
Andrew Mitchell,
Our lives with conveniences is really a facade. Take away our modern ways and foundations of technology and raw nature would be our only way of life. Veiwing the way of wild nature seems so hard because it is not our reality. Yes your poem reallyspeaks volumes. Wild animals are constantly watchful for another living thing to consume and of course be consumed. Birds look for food and peck on the ground very watchfully. From the highest on the food chain to the tiniest creature. I liked "food for thought" this writing brought.
Blessings again,

Philosopher, poet and survivalist daring to walk the crooked path through life, all because straight lines on a round surface is not his idea of balance. Standing Ovation! Clap! Clap!

Hi Andrew. This has the greatest cadence than any other piece I have read of yours. This is so close to being spot on. 4 and 9 are the most problematic for me. Love the poem, love the way you have expressed your feelings. Great stuff!! alf

ooooh really like this one. "for you could be next on natures prey" So very true. You just never know what or who is next in life.

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
