Poetry – Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

The children are dying of cancer!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

The elephants are being wiped out!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

The homeless are freezing to death!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Starving children are going without!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

There’s a catastrophe in Haiti!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

The forests are being chopped down !

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

We’re being swamped with refugees!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Global warming will make us all drown!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Women are being battered!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Whales are being slaughtered again!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

The wars are creating more orphans!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Babies are in so much pain!

Send Money!! Send Money!! Send Money!!

Where does this misery end?

My money is such a pitiful drop?

Who is causing all this misery?

When will it ever stop?

Opher – 29.9.2021

The answer is very simple.

The misery is a direct result of how we human beings organise ourselves.

Nothing more.

We choose this!

We choose to allow a small minority to retain most of the world’s wealth instead of distributing it more fairly.

We choose to allow people to destroy the animals, chop down the forests and pollute for profit.

We choose to tolerate cruelty, violence, war, victimisation and poverty.

It does not have to be like that.

We could choose to live differently.

There is enough wealth and sufficient resources for everyone to have a good standard of living.

We could live sustainably without ransacking the planet and killing everything.

We could put an end to poverty, violence and war.

We choose not to.

We elect megalomaniacs, sociopaths and psychopaths.

We aspire to be part of that greedy, selfish elite.

It could be so very different.
