Little Butterfly

Hold it gently
let it fly
Beautiful little butterfly
squeeze it tightly
make it die
Poor little butterfly

Lonely Hours

Lonely hours
spent
watching the rain
like tears
on the window pane.

Lonely hours
wishing
you were here with me
as I gaze
over another cup of tea.

Lonely hours
spent
alone, crying
dying slowly
because you are gone.

Lonely City

Lost
not knowing where you are
Lost
are friends near or far
Lost
in a city full of people
Lonely
no-one to talk to
Lonely
No friends, just you
Lonely
in a city full of people
Lost
but in a crowd
you ask for help
they don't make a sound
Lonely
but not alone
no-one wants to know you
no-one even phones.

In their thousands
creeping over the desolate land
scouring for food - for life
The stench was sickening
The sky black, thickening
so no light passed through

Ants

looking for crumbs - anything
dead bodies all over
or writhing in pain
as the skies darken again

Humans
In their hundreds
Staggering through the empty streets
In their hunt for companionship - and food

Our Childrens Legacy - This Ruined Earth

In that dreamlike state we call living
We give in to desires of the flesh
We take without thought, without giving
until there is nothing left
We destroy all the land round about us
We'll destroy the balance of life
Barren wastes will lie deserted
Whilst we still cause trouble and strife
We have no thoughts of the future
Our childrens legacy, a barren land
So pollute and destroy, build and bomb
leave no green land, just atomic sand
Tear down the trees, concrete it over
after all, WE won't be around that long.
