It’s been too quiet around here
no snow until today
a winter so mild, it makes me wonder
what is in store ahead.
The peace found in nature
unparalleled with a wild, wild world
where uncertainty has set in
on the political scene.
So much unrest
yet these pine trees
outside my window
seem unscathed, at least for now.
But if we stop caring about the environment
what will all the money in the world do
we can’t buy clean water, blue skies, and oxygen.
While the rich get richer
children and the elderly go hungry
and vanity is more valued than the arts.
Will we forget about health and science, too
all in the name of greed.
