What will be left?

What will be left?

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

We need to show concern for Nature. Before she disappears.

"
  What will be left?
 
I took my children to the lake.
Signs are posted.
 Do not swim.
 
I will buy a K-mart pool and put in the backyard.
 
Damn we killed off the Great Lakes.
 
Cancer is running uncontrollable..
 
The slow death by pollution and greedy men.
Destroying our forest and woodlands.
 
Will  my children be able to play outside?
Or will pollution eat away at their dreams.
 
We tell our children to be kind.
Skin color doesn't matter.
 You can do anything.
 
We tell them to be fair and not fight.
Fighting will not solve problems.
 
Yes, the children see our morals.
 They see the hate and disappointment.
 
  Their eyes see the thousands who are homeless and poor.
 
Our leaders  sending soldiers to kill.
Not trying to have  peace talks and solve problems.
 
We wonder why our children don't want our leftovers.
 
We must stop the hate.
And the violence and the useless killing.
 
Keep the family together.
 
The healing must begin.
Or the eyes and mind of our children will turn against us.
 
For leaving nothing.

Author's Note

Coyote Poetry
I worry for this world. When I was young. I was going to do great things. Now I see we added to the waste and abuse of this planet. For the sake of the children. We must find sanity and try to save the planet before the road to hell can't be fixed.

"For the sake of the children" this carnage and callous disregard must stop. I so agree with you my friend. I am so afraid for the world in these days, now that insanity prevails at the highest level. I am so glad that you chronicle this for us so beautifully. Thank you Coyote...

I completely agree with what your are saying. That is why i am trying to help out the people who are victims of hurricane mathew. I have been trying all day. I believe helping one person will lead to me helping the world to fix this problem of rud ungratefulness.

Yes, your piece tells of that walk that we never really know we are taking, yet once we reach the destination there is no way of going back, well done, good read.

Hmmmm...It's a very beautiful poem. However, I've never shared any sentiments with environmentalists. We don't owe our planet anything. It's just a floating rock in space. If we manage to create space colonies, I can see no reason why we shouldn't leave it behind. I do agree with the anti-war argument though. Humanity cannot move forward scientifically when we're stuck in the past solving disputes like wild animals.
