The Blame


wedge

Myopic is the global, political mindset,
It yields the greatest electoral return,
Foregoing the interest of the unborn children,
Yields fossil fuels legislated to pollute, opposition to spurn.

Jobs, jobs, and more jobs
The rationale to explain and excuse
The destruction of earthly resources
Health and welfare of the many to be abused

Fracking, pipelines nomenclature of the day,
Hyped as essential for the economy to survive.
Forests and fresh water resources given to the cause;
Deemed unessential for humanity to flourish and thrive.

The powers that be hold all the relevant cards,
The balance of power rests in their hand.
To reverse the current destructive, global path;
The powerless together, must unite and band.

Populace, street demonstrations are impudent to needed change;
A more powerful, permanent message may be needed, enforced.
A global, collective opposition to those self-serving and rule;
A tangible, visible sign of change that all humanity can endorse.

Violence, loss of property and life is not the wanted course,
Yet they whom hold the power for conditions to be sustained
Continue to ignore the plight and demands of the many;
Whatever the outcome, responsibility, to them, the blame, remains.
