EVICTION IS MY PREDICTION

Mother Nature can be a vengeful bitch  
She'll destroy us
Long before we can destroy her  
 
Sooner or later
She'll tire of our harassment  
And in a diatribe she'll smite us from this planet  
 
The end of humanity does not mean the end of the world  
Seems the earth is still doing fine
Since the Neanderthal demise  
 
Don't think for a minute that you can hide behind God  
For if not God's mistress  
Mother Earth is the Goddess  
 
The next great war will not be man against man  
But man against nature  
Want to bet who wins?

In De Nile

 
(Put your feet up mix a cocktail and relax)

(There will be a prize if you make it to the end)


I have been called many things
Everything from cabbage to kings
Stumpy, grumpy, frumpy, and bumpy
A gentle man, half a man, walk like a man
Talk like a man, a mans man, a ladies man
A jester, uncle fester, wears polyester,
A protestor, shrewd investor, drug tester,
A sheep molester, a sexual pester
Been called Sylvester, Lester and even Ester

My rhyming stuck on things ending in 'ster'
I should move on to words ending in 'stir'

But I digress...

So I have some new accusers
And like so many other abusers
They have new name they can call
I thought I had heard them all
But apparently, I am in de Nile
This ironically makes me smile
Now this bud needs to be nipped
I have never ever been to Egypt
So suck on that
You name calling twat

Excuse me for this preamble
For this rhyming piece of ramble

So to the point...

The planet is fine and dandy
Global warming lies are handy
The Ice sheets are not reducing
NASA facts I'm introducing
The ice sheets, every year get bigger
I donít mean to make you trigger
There are more trees now than have ever been
But the facts don't matter they are rarely seen
The planet changes regardless of man
In fact, it changes despite the toiling of man
95% of all godsí creatures who have ever lived
Extinct and man's guilt should be given short shrift
And if polar bears and rhinos are dying
Nature gave them a chance and got fed up trying
Nature moves on without regret
Sits on her throne, smokes a cigarette
Invents new species as willed
They will all kill or be killed
I look forward to the day
When nature makes mankind go away

So now, I am a climate denier
In addition, I am a science denier
A conspiracy theorist, a nut
A kook, a lunatic, and a mutt
The very name-calling is anti-science
Global warming is a religion without question
Dare anyone make an alternative suggestion
Its all about power, money, and greed
Ignoring hard evidence, well lies need to feed
Fear mongers and prophets of doom
Get out of our childrenís classroom
It's one theory, not fact
Moreover, we are not going to act
Because anything man does is ineffectual
Despite Bill Nye the pseudo-intellectual (Guy)

Think about this...

We have had:
Round earth deniers
Deniers of sun rotation
Evolution deniers
Deniers of germ science
Antibiotic deniers
Deniers of flying machines
Electricity deniers
Deniers of the edge of the world
Heart bypass surgery deniers
Technological advancement deniers
This list is without end
All of them wrong
And the reverse of them
Could be proved wrong any day now
Science is a moveable buffet
Science is not an exact science
It awaits change by invention
And challenging conventional thinking
Every doom prophesy of
"The Inconvenient Truth"
Turned into ďThe Convenient Lies
The author made millions
With nothing but junk science
No predictions came to pass
The answer my friend is blowing out your ass

The indoctrination of children with just a theory
Taught as fact and taught not to query
Is child abuse
Does this make all who worship at the alter
Of man-made climate change a child abuser?
Maybe calling names back
Might be a start
So it begins, the revolution
Itís a natural evolution
No one can hide
When the planet decides
With its fickle finger of fate
With destiny, we have a date
In the blink of a wink
Mankind will be made extinct
We are having the last dance
We have had our chance
Like an irritated dog
Scratching flees unclogged
Nature loses us in the fog
And out of the mist
We no longer exist
As cockroaches take their rightful place
Ending humanities fall from grace

Migration

I didnít believe it when I first had heard of it,
So I booked a cruise to the high seas,
There were rumors it was the end of the world,
Even scientists were baffled and ill at ease.

There were several ships at the destination,
When we got there it was a sight for the eyes,
But all of us were quiet in awe of this miracle,
As the flying whales took off into the skies.

The majestic giants floated upward free,
All the different kinds, in groups and in pods,
They sang a song like a floating Orca-stra,
Answering the calls of some ancient gods.

Then we all feared what weíd done to the earth,
The creatures of the deep had decided to leave,
As the whales swung their tails swimming in the air,
It was something that my eyes still couldnít believe.

And the higher they got the lighter they became,
Disappearing amidst the clouds in the sky,
Their song of migration - to find another place,
Because planet earth soon will one day die.

What Do You See

When you see a rainbow
What do you see
The prophecy of Hopi or Cree
A bridge to the other side
The promise of God thatís still alive
A jasper or a sardius stone    
The colors around the throne
A new tribe of warriors to lead the way
The double-headed dragon you can never slay
A marshmallow in a breakfast treat
The new path in life to a spiritual suite
A path to a pot of gold
The promise of a newborn to behold
As for me, all I see
The colors that canít be undone
A ending thatís just the beginning
Made only by the son

Dear Fellow Poets,
First of all, a big thank you to ALL who entered and created these wonderful poem with their words.
I had no idea where this competition would lead (me) to and I was astounded by all the poesm like streams.
Enjoyed reading them. My choice was made by a poem that for me spoke of delicate hidden messages.
An almost mystical write, NOMOTH, Congrats for your entry. I really liked the dark veil of it. It had a voice
so old that it almost sounded like a real prophecy, the ones they wrote in old times. I thought you cleverly
knotted the lines, writing history, like medievial versus the modern worlds and some lines were amazing!
SOUL, you wrote so earthly and letting the forests and natural worlds speak through your words which are held dear.
the depth of your poem was like the depths of the earth. The earths axis.....fabulous
AHAVATI, you graced the competition by storm, and your poem is masterly told. I felt you told a hugely important
message. Your poem spoke on so many levels it dazzled my mind. The kind of poem to sink in calmly, but when it does
it leaves one with awe and wonder. I must admit I had to look at the word "Fenweh". Could not have chosen a better word to express. The wander in the core of the soul which is the essence of a tear, of loss but also of gratitude.

Honerable mention GRACE and SLIPALONG, both poems were a very creative woven imagery.

Retire now to your pens and to your screens
Meet you in the next comp

Firstly, congratulations to nomoth for a much-deserved win. I almost didn't enter this because I felt his could not be topped. But, we're each instilled with our own visions that need to be shared, and it's never really about the placement, is it?  Secondly, congratulations soul, nice to see you back with one of your signature writes. Lastly, thank you, Melia, for hosting another spirit-moving comp, for placement among so many worthy entries, and for the personal RL Honour, which speaks volumes in and of itself.
