Eating salads under the grapevines
with my wife and favorite sister and law,
with birds, chirping and flitting
through the trees and vines,
with the waiters hovering
and attentive to ours and others beck and call.
The conversation got round to
the poisoning of the earth by
multi-national companies like Monsanto,
and my signing of a declaration
that I signed promising
that I would no longer
drink any Coke products,
because they support Monsanto.
Then my mind is with the birds,
the dappled sky, and the warm sun,
which peeped out from behind
clouds every now again,
and I read that 2014 was definitely the warmest
year in existence, and caused by man made pollution,
and I wondered when we would
get it right to save our planet.
