I’ve always been naïve.
It’s my greatest attribute.
Innocent and idealistic –
According to repute.
But I possess inbuilt cynicism
That I bring to bear.
It constrains my natural idealism
And makes me more aware.
Opher – 7.11.2020
My anger at what is happening around me, the wanton destruction, the control and manipulation, the propaganda and lies, the pillaging of nature, is underpinned by the vestiges of optimism.
Surely people care enough about nature to want to protect it?
Surely people aren’t stupid enough to allow conmen and media lies to dictate their views?
My hope lies in education – good education that enables individuals to discern and think.
