26 Oct

stirred into the future

a tablespoon of yesterday

and a cup of today 

all mixed up

for our children to learn from



woven into the future

a yarn of  war and strife

one each of poverty and violence

all nicely patterned

for our children to sleep on  



thrown into the future

an empty bottle in the sea

some poisoned air to breathe

all discarded

for our children to live with


They will not be impressed!
