This world is our home, a wonderful dome, filled with such diverse beauty oh what have we done?
Our home chokes to death on invisible black flames of carbon, oh what have we done? What have we done?
Trees falling all around us, a great infestation of greed pulls them to the ground, oh what have we done? What have we done?
What do we need so badly that we’re destroying the things we need the most? Air, land, sea, sky, oh why, oh why, oh why? What have we done? Look what we’ve done!
The big brains say we’re progressing, but what is progression? To die before we’ve lived? We’ve no other place to go, so why are we cutting the world away like there’s an alternative?
There is no alternative
Oh what have we done? What have we done?
We’re progressing towards mass extinction, mass end of life, mass death run rife.
What have we done?
We can stop…
Small changes mean a lot
Giving up comforts for survival maybe our only revival – look what we’ve done, stop this… everyone?
Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s death…
I know I’ve already touched on this subject before, but there are other ways I stop myself from coming up against a brick wall when it comes to writing. It’s a method of which involves what I call “constructive procrastination”.
What I do is I sit back and I enjoy a good game of online scrabble or words with friends, any word game really, and any words my opponent gets, I write them down on a list and I use them for poems or ideas for short stories. For those who don’t play many word games, I sometimes notice there are themes that occur in games of scrabble unwittingly, you can sometimes see whole stories with what crops up, it can be amazing brain-storming.
