The moral ozone


Oh, hole in earth’s ozone layer,
A worry well worth worrying
That soon may get this globe greyer,
Yet, there’re worries more worrying:
Take holes in our moral ozone,
Whatso the men of ken may say,
Not one vexed hair greyer has grown,
Nor one has walked a wiser way.
Me, a pen-pusher grown greyer,
In vain say this silent prayer.

Weapons settle no mores of men,
Fear, nor global catastrophe,
Morals today, a dung-hill hen,
Can wake but one that willing be.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
