Regulate our rabid roaring.
Ease back every brutal word.
Stop the spread of sour suspicion.
Tell them too much hate is heard.
Rein in reckless rabbiting.
Ask angry creatures count to five.
Inch away from icy inclines.
No lemming leaps and stays alive.
The wise bee works to save the hive.

Where?

plastics don’t pollute our waters –
rhythms of slow seasons rock –
every species finds a foothold
free from artificial shock –
elemental nature governs
rules of tidal ebb and flow –
experts track down earthly truths
not cloudy claims they’re in the know –
create this world of balance restored –
elect anyone not too easily bored …

I couldn’t let today pass by without saying something about the climate change protests that have taken place around the globe. Let armchair critics have their outraged rants about schoolchildren missing lessons and adult working days being lost, their fury fueled by reactionary media in cahoots with tax evaders and toxic polluters. I believe we’ve heard too much cynical mockery of youthful idealism and more than enough nasty ridicule of the ‘snowflake’ variety. The future belongs to young people and their children and it’s absolutely right that they have their say now, before it’s too late. The times, along with the old demographics, are changing and if politicians understand anything at all it is the power of symbols to change hearts and minds – a power exponentially amplified in the huge whispering gallery of a deregulated social media. In the increasingly faint but fervent hope that our wars can remain purely cultural, I’ve chosen a picture which seems to strike some kind of balance.
