Up in Shame

When the world hollows out

And the sun cooks up blame,

Don’t forget there were times

When we’d known

The con-game,

And yet chose –

To our shame –

Truth’s very core to



We allowed

A shell-game

To carve the Earth


In flames.

    • Thank you! It IS sad that some choose to willfully ignore our being a fiduciary of this one planet we all must share. Maybe one day soon more will see the truth and work together to preserve, not destroy. Glad the rhyme worked!


  1. Time was, only cranks raised their voices in defence of the Earth. Now, praise the divines, the number of Earth Warriors increase apace. Let’s hope it proves enough to save us from being refugees in space.

    • Indeed it seems the world is rule by cowards, but it is INHABITED by many who are not … It is up to each and every one of us whether we cower or speak up …
      And I believe humanity can speak up!
