The Earth is Broken

by Angella Horner, UK

This evening the sky turned a sombre page
The colour slate grey as the wind did rage
The clouds beneath rolled slowly by
The ether was silent above the sky
Timelessness entered and brushed my arm
It did not comfort nor alarm
It brought a vision of antiquity
And with it a sense of futility
A strange omniscience hovered around
It spoke of the laws by which we are bound
We have damaged our earth from sin and greed
There had been warnings which we did not heed
The plague had been sent to give us time
To put back the clock, a mountain to climb
We learned to live with clean air again
We saw clearer skies and fresher rain
But now the cars are back once more
And the clouds above they start to roar
