I don’t try too hard
Being top has benefits
Respect is given

Good Earth is fractured
Our philosophy unsound
Nature overcomes

Poem: ‘Take Heed’

This morning I heard the blackbird’s song,
a sound of hope, that is spring on its way.
Now I listen to the sounds of nature,
look for significant shapes in the sky,
rather than heed the rumour and ruse,
shenanigans of the twisted minds of men
