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.
By Dennis Renner
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,
For once the black death,
As the monster’s 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 monster’s 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,
It’s the golden rule.
It is a simple principle,
Don’t burn the black death fuel.
Seek out and use alternative solutions,
Bicycle, walk ,or run,
Oil and Coal…
