Save yourselves from climate change

BIG-SUpoetry-01-SaveYourselves-NEW2

 

Four and a half billion years ago, I was born;

Only two hundred thousand years is your age.

I can survive even if you humans are gone;

Save yourselves, not me, from climate change!

Leave foolish humanity alone

BIG-SUpoetry-03-LeaveFoolsAlone

 

Once upon a time, from a galaxy far away,

Aliens the Destroyers invaded the Milky Way.

As usual they had a mission, only one:

Destroying intelligent life – just for fun!

 

Soon Destroyers came to know about Earth,

But then there was a debate about the worth

Of an assault on humans on planet this.

The Destroyer criterion – they meet or miss?

 

On the one hand, by committing ecocide,

Humans are on a path of mass suicide.

And it’s intelligent life, the mission was clear.

Humanity to intelligence – no way near!

 

“Non-intelligent humans are destroying nature

On which they depend; so sooner or later,”

Said the Destroyer Chief, “They will be gone.”

All agreed, “Let’s leave the fools alone.”

Growth isn’t supreme?

BIG-SUpoetry-02-GrowthNotSupremeNEWNEW

 

Once upon a time, in a developed country,

Angry business leaders held a big meeting.

Business is business – no hanky-panky!

Then environmental laws got a big beating.

 

Business boomed; growth shot to sky;

Jobs were plenty; prosperity at hand.

No ‘green tape’ to worry about, that’s why

Life was fun – like on a dream land.

 

Slowly degraded nature; who’d care?

Growth in full swing; that’s all what mattered!

Business depends on soil, water and air;

No wonder eventually growth got battered.

 

No growth, polluted nature – all that’s left.

No one could believe their eyes or ears.

So growth isn’t supreme; many wept

For all had to live in pollution – oh dear!

Asitha Jayawardena

 

So growth isn’t supreme if it’s not green?
