Best Poem of Eric Cockrell

A Child Is Dying

for every tree you cut down,
a child is dying.
for every barrel of oil that
you drill and spill,
a child is dying.
for every coal mine you
rape the earth with,
a child is dying.
for all the nuclear waste
you cannot dispose of,
a child is dying.

for every country you bomb,
a child is dying.
for every chemical you spray
on your vegetables,
a child is dying.

for every river you dam & drain,
a child is dying.
for every oil field you own,
a child is dying.

for every animal you drive
to the brink of ...

The Tongue

I am the tongue,
The wick, and the shoe.
The fallen nest, the unnamed star.
Conceived from dust,
And forged from steel.
I carry the name
Of bodies without faces.
I bury the bone,
And tend the fire.

[Hata Bildir]
