Earth 2011-12

Interest-gouging bankers connive
with dominant global corporations
to strip land, sea, body and brains
of their total monetary worth,
even as their poisoned biosphere
fails to regenerate and survive
its chemical degradations
and sickening atmosphere
closing in around
whoever remains

This poet yearned
for peace and balance
in their World of troubles,
pollution and global death,
though what he learned
entrapped his talents
in computer bubbles
and media silence
to his final breath.
