This maybe a little artsy for this group but I think this poem still delivers an important message.  I also hope you enjoy reading it.

 

 

Black Death

By Dennis Renner

 

Beware!

 

For deep within the darkness,

In the bowels of the earth.

Looms a monster of doom.

Death and destruction are its' mirth.

 

A frightening substance,

Buried deep in this sphere.

A place where it should remain,

Otherwise, we all shall fear.
 

For once the black death,

Is brought from below.
Igniting its' menacing wrath,
Its' evil spirit will begin to grow.
 

As the monsters power is released,

Its evil plan is for you to die.

Our planet grows closer to being deceased,

Human greed is its ally.

 

Its apparition slithers above the ground,

Until it befalls its prey.

Its death and destruction are bound,

Bringing gloom to everyday.

 

Arise the monsters anger,

The forest and the farmer feel the pain.

Every-living thing suffers,

When it descends as acid rain. 

 

Blinded from its' shadow,

The sun and the truth.

Beware of the open window,

Demise follows this evil sleuth.

 

How do we stop this evil?

The monsters all consuming feast.

For we as the black death user,

Nurture and propagate the beast.

 

The answer is simple,

Its the golden rule.

It is a simple principle,

Dont burn the black death fuel.

 

Seek out and use alternative solutions,

Bicycle, walk ,or run,

Saving the earth, for future generations,
Will bring elation to everyone.

Maybe we could get this, and other Green Atheist poems, as works in progress in Atheist Writers on this site? Then bring them back here?
Terrific Poem Dennis. I'm impressed. You write so well. Thanks for sharing it with us. At first I thought you might have been referring to the methane gases that are stored in the earth, under the ice and are now being exposed since the snow and ice are melting. (Where is the illustration?)
Hi Sydni

My Copyright text is just a standard cut and paste. I never thought about the illustration part till you mentioned it. You got me to thinking about a drawing I had done, that might be appropriate, so I up loaded it as an illustration for the Poem Black Death.
