A POEM FOR OUR TIME.

20th May 2020

AS HUMANS GO INTO HIDING BIRDS COMEBACK OUT GLIDING
BACK TO EARTH AND THEIR RIGHTFUL HOME
BACK TO THE LAND WHICH HUMANS HAD CLAIMED AS THEIR OWN
THEY BUILT UP CITYS AND CRAFTED HOMES
WANTING MORE BUILDINGS TO CALL THEIR OWN
THEY LAUGHED OVER THE COST
BUT NOT RECOGNISING WHAT THEY HAD LOST
ALL THEY CARED ABOUT WAS THE MONEY
BUT TO THE ANIMALS THIS WASN’T FUNNY, SPECIES DIED AND HUMANS THRIVED.

BUT THEN ONE DAY A VIRUS WAS RELEASED AND THE HUMAN POPULATION DECREASED
ANIMALS SHOWED THEMSELVES ONCE MORE IN GARDENS, PARKS, HILLS, AND MOORS.
HUMANS REALISED THAT THERE WAS MORE TO OUR PLANET THAN GAMES, COMPUTERS AND MONEY, 
FOR WHAT WE REALLY LOVED HAD VANISHED.
WHAT WE REALLY WANTED WAS THERE FROM THE BEGINNING, IT WAS NATURE, NOT MONEY, GAMES AND WINNING.

IT WAS EMBARRISING FOR THE HUMANS THAT IT TOOK A VIRUS TO STOP IT.
THERE WAS SO MUCH POLLUTION FROM TRAINS, PLANES AND EVEN A ROCKET.
THEY KNEW A LOT OF CLEANING UP HAD TO BE DONE SO CHILDREN AND AMIMAL COULD ONCE AGAIN HAVE FUN.
THIS TIME THEY WILL TRY REALLY HARD BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS KNOW THE WORLD WOULD BE SCARRED.

WE HAVE HAD TIME TO PAUSE, THINK AND REFLECT,
NOW WE KNOW THAT THERE IS BUT ONE WORLD TO GUARD AND PROTECT.
