From A Vernal Wood

.

“One impulse from a vernal wood

May teach you more of man,

Of moral evil and of good,

Than all the sages can.”

~ William Wordsworth

Poem:

.

alas, that man no longer learns
what Nature so gladly teaches
how survival of the fittest turns
a slow evolution of our features

nature has been displaced by city jungles
man’s attitude influenced by race and religion
majority of concerns regard daily struggles
billions ignorant about nuclear fission

pollution encroaches upon Walden’s pond
oceans clogged by plastic litter
stupid believes the cure is a government bond
or maybe the magic of a presidential twitter

Chicago’s sounds come from gunshots
birds gave up singing long ago
San Francisco’s sanctuary is tied in knots
innocent victims and narcotics dough

Paris riots over global warming
religious radicals causing much woe
Los Angeles is draining the Colorado
extremist need to go with the flow

today is your chance to cure the burn
breath deep, breath slow
find a bad habit to overturn
learn from nature which way to go
