GAIA`S REVENGE

Gaia uprising
Gaia warriors indeed
Never ever thought
I would hear
Extinction Rebellion
In my years
Global warming
Climate change
A hoax?
Maybe, but only the rich
Will be saved
To start again
A new world order
Of one-percenters

Bill and Melinda Gates
At the top
And what about
Mark Zuckerburg
Or the Amazon guy
Let them see
What money can't buy
Flowing rivers
Oceans clean
No rubbish ever seen
Let them see after
Killing off the little people
How life will really be
Can't find a maid
Can't find a chauffeur
Not thinking
How they shall survive
Without the little people
That helped in large part
To make them rich
And to survive
In unimaginable comfort

Gaia's revenge
Has set in
Universal bewilderment
Of what to do
To make things better
In only 10 years
Is a crisis
Of unthinkable
Destruction and ruthless
Killing living beings
Killing of sustenance resources
As can be consumed
By gaseous expulsions
Into the air
From hair spray to autos
Known for sometime
Hiding evidence
To grow ruch
From those who seek
Earth's trials and tribulations
Wrought by humankind

Gaia's Revenge is at hand
Soon to be out of control
No where to go
World leaders grapple with such things
Some more devoted than others
Gaia can no longer
Carry the load
So most will go
Like the old and poverty stricken
To make room
New world order

Christians, Muslins, Jews alike
Buddhists, Hindus alike
And all the others
Will discover their god
Really wasn't there
To save them
From mass destruction
At their very own hands
A sad state of affairs
A sad state for humankind
Of where we were
Of where we are
Of where to be
When Gaia's revenge
Reigns red in the sky
With oceans of plastic
No oak trees
No redwoods either
No Amazon forests
To support breathing
To sustain life

Gaia's Revenge
Is upon us
Sacrifices must be made
In a hurry to survive.

The spectrum to come (rainbows end)

Red  
Seeing it and then be calm
That mist be one of healing balm  
And know that danger overwhelms  
Now to defend your blood and bonds  

Orange †
The badge that warns and brings alarm  
" hi viz" jacket and its omens †
Signs that we ignored in time prolonged  
 Of amber resin burned and forests gone  

Yellow  
The cowardly will not compete  
When your ideals make people sick  
Oppose all those coal burning plants †
The sulphur clouds, the choking cough  

Green  
Come now join the verdant tribe  
CREE ideals the earth and oceans bride  
Ancestry that cares, give more than you take  
Not leaves of brown, a spring of doom purchased  
† †
Blue  
The dirty ocean full of plastic crap †
Reflect the sky, electic fash and thunder clap  
The solied wash, the laundry every nation threw  
Its concequence to outlive me and you  

Violet  
The ultra glow †
Its frequency the power to disclose  
To reveil a catholic cloak of faith  
Cant save us from uncertain death  

Indigo  
That veil will come to cover all  
Of never darkness, never light  
The now thats wasted wrapped in gloom  
The pigment that will self indict †

†† † † † † † † † Renewal  

When the time for healing comes  
And man has very few resorce  
†Be ones self and not rely  
And jettison all sense of greed  
The primeval hid so deep  
†Scales so tipped the odds against  
†Hills so steep for your ascent  
†Clouds of acid rain do part  
From the †wrekage of that zoo  
A brave new world began anew

"From the wreckage of the zoo
A brave new world will begin anew."  
Love the zoo.

Ok well it appears that AEMelia564 copied it for me. I am wondering though will I get credit to help move my rank up to next level in this manner?

Rainbow Mind

I feel Her colors
when it rains.
I feel Her breaking free
drowning Her pains,
I feel Her in me.

I feel me in Her
becoming alight,
evoking Herself to
light up the night;
She is Heaven's bliss.

She is in me
becoming my voice,
I write from Her soul
becoming her choice;
We are the same voice.

Here within a rainbow mind
the sun is shining
all the time.
We are as one,
we sing in kind;
a rainbow vision,
colorblind.

hymnal: mass of the specific. mass of the pacific.

(for Rainbow Prophecy competition)   † †  
†† † † † †  
mass of the specific † † † † † †
being lost was never the problem † † † † † †
†† † † † † † †
these sentient scars breathe † † † † † †
†† a longing, † † † † † †  
for a guiding constellation † † † † † †
in a dandelion seed † † † † † †  
when it splits and disperses. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
†† If I could survey the rabbit tracks † † † † † †
on the lay of you. And know where they lead † † † † † †
I would burn your church down: † † † † † †
†† see the little snares in the grass. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
††and I canít dismantle their metal, not in † † † † † †
this life time; † †  
†the scent on old clothes † † † † † †
†of†those who laid your traps.† † † † † †
† † † † † †  
mass of the pacific † † † † † †
† †she ripped apart her roots to escape the schools, † † † † † †
a new identity upon the land of angelic empire. † † † † † †
in liturgy to bring forth 21, a catholic mafia of unbearable abuse, † † † † † †
and I couldnít stop the waterfall † † † † † †  
of my fatherís pain though itís all I ever wanted
† † † † † †
† † † † † †  
† † †
I canít see your flesh; I can only see the lay of you † † † † † †
† †the atmosphere of place in imagination † † † †  
†† like I dreamed of this terrain, †that the actual path was † † † † † †
the way and I should walk this path like it was a memory. A long ago † † † † † †
place I visited and was. † † † † † There † † † † † †
is no place you go † † † † † †  
from where I cannot bring you back. † † † † † †

Rainbow Prophecy 2020

Everyday itís possible to realize
That the plane of your existence
Can be divided into quadrants.
They speak of wind, earth, fire and water
Did you know thereís more?
Itís there even when your eyes are closed.
You feel it when you stand outside
An open field is best
Or deep inside a neighbor-wood
Youíve walked and walked
Observed the path
Then you stop
You listen
Close your eyes
To the right you hear the birds
To the left, you hear the trees
Ahead you hear the laughter
And behind the roar of the people
The machines
The cars
The city noise
Itís alive
But itís dying
Killing itself
Itís time to decide
Which way you need to go
Where do you need to be
Who is calling you?
Do you need to be home
Do you need to runaway
Do you need to find solace
In the world you thought you knew
The joggers transport in space
Their feet make time stand still
Their world on the fast track
And you stand there
Frozen
Amazed
At nature
She calls you
She reminds you
She asks you
She welcomes you
Her spirits are around you
Tugging at you
Directing you
Are you resisting?
Find yourself
Follow your senses
Be prepared to turn around
Be prepared to run
For the rainbow people are watching you
Examining every move
Chose wisely
Act fearless
For there are those
Not from the rainbow
But from below
Who smell your fear
And will chase you down
Through every town
Until you find the truth
Then rainbow friends envelope you
They keep you safe and dry
Your mind open
Skin tingling
You know what must be done
Clean your space
Clean where you have been
Clean where you will go
Share delight with nature
Be kind to nature
Respect the nature
And invite your friends to follow.
Rainbow people hide
Each to find his own.
