Fatal Attraction


Oh... From mother earths beginning I was there born
My arms forever held in welcome gesture
My backbone rings its annual display as
I stand steadfast, fingered roots grip deep beneath this earth
Thru tempest rain and fire
I will grow again
I can live growing a thousand years or more
My ageing years do not condemn I grow stronger
Born so wealthy in happiness as a multitude of life lives within my canopy
Mother earth’s lungs dwell within
Consuming monoxides ‘carbon, expelling life’s oxygen for every life
Of man his dog plants food and rivers flowing to the sea
Why cut me down to cut the hand that feeds them...Fatal attraction
Why stack me along the freeway for
Young men that have again a fatal attraction and
Wrap their cars around me?
Global warming is a warning
Carbon slush is killing us softly
Oh for a leader to speak out and shout
We can do this and do something like a man
Educate eradicate travel on a recycle and
Remember the poles are melting!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
