by the ignored consequences
of environmental crimes
in these self-deluded times
people suppress their senses
for whatever it's worth
as the pollution gets worse
will this weary poet
soon be relieved of
his long devotion to
holistic rhyme and verse
by a far more weary
planet Earth,
or does she remain
even today after
4.5 billion years
our living, dynamic,
struggling biosphere?
