I have to say, this is brilliant. The language, the descriptions used and the alliteration throughout paint such a damning picture. Such a relevant piece of poetry, so perfectly and originally executed. Nominated.
Mr D, - deforestation, forest fires and ice caps melting, so sad what mankind has/is doing to our beautiful world. We don't deserve it, we really don't!
Such depth to this piece, gives me a sad but familiar feel about our world.
.. as for parasites that is what we are indeed!
Great piece of work fella.
Hello there Mr, I'm sorry I missed this one.. How I'm not so sure. Firstly, I'd like to congratulate you on your front page :) Secondly, I'd like to say if this wasn't on the front page and I wasn't highly interested in your work and obvs hadn't missed this then I'd have been intrigued by the title of this as it called to me that even in the saddest of times we must pick ourselves up and disy ourselves off because we have people to prove wrong, maybe I'm dead wrong but just my first thought with the title.
The actual content of this is astounding with extremely vivid content.
Wow, what amazing structure this poem has and I live your layout and the way you include things like stuttering the word stutter etc, it made the whole poem very suspenseful as if you were telling us a story and we had to keep reading on to find out more.
Great way to create a message, one which we all hear every day but sometimes it takes imagery like this to hit it home how much we have failed as a species and need to change our ways - even just begin to observe what is happening in our world.
I could totally see this piece being narrated over an advert - with David Attonboroughs voice!!
