I’m treading water a bit at the moment trying to do up my new house and finish my two latest novels. So this is a poem I wrote while in Australia.
For me and you
If we are fair.
There’s no need
To grab too much –
More than our share
For if we truly care
And help our fellow men
And nature too
They’ll be more than enough
For me and you.
I yearn for fairness and equality, an end to arrogance and selfishness.
I crave a better world where a tiny minority are not exploiting everyone to cream off more than they can ever be worth.
I want a world built on sanity where nature is protected, where everything is not up for grabs and run for profit.
I want a happy world.
There’s enough for us all and nature if we only learn to do it better.
There’s nowhere near enough if we continue to destroy it all with impunity. We will destroy ourselves.
