Climate Strike!

The earth is like an old woman

rattling her tin for coppers

and hoping to buy a sandwich to

keep body and soul together.


Embarrassed they shuffle on

passed and feign indifference

while their minds adhere to 

the potency of power riven politics.


Instead of coins though they make

her pay more and more

until her flesh has shrunken and

her energy leeched.


No sandwich, no hope,

then children loudly shout

out, “Now is the time,

to RENEW your minds!

RENEW the earth!

and let her again

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
