Listlessly the time drags on….
Listlessly the time drags on;
the heat of the sun’s inclement force
scorches the earth and sears the lawn,
with no compassion or remorse,
Inviting smog; the firmament appears divorced
from every cloud, sparrows twittering forlorn!
Nature as if has sorely vowed
to let its anger loose upon
Spoilers of its erstwhile plan;
the belly of the tortured earth being full
of the poisonous acts of man;
and not until the sun goes down
Eases the burden of the dirge
of the sad, old Earth; but soon
another day arrives, another scourge,
another cry of Nature woebegone!
Life on Earth advances on and on,
and with it all the foibles of man that are
his legacy to those as yet unborn
whose privileges tomorrow may be gone.
