Wonderous, teeming life on earth evolved.
Our hands reveal the past.

Hot servers warm cool ocean currents.
Shared space surges.
Crabs scuttle sideways, claws raised.

Caught on line.
Then, the social hierarchy
turned round.
Before they drowned.
The highest concentration
of micro plastics
never found.

On a mission, delivering
containers to the contained

Joint Stock, limiting company.
Our circle, our spoils.
Cock crows.
HR prepares sacrifice.
CSR crosses road.
PR issue denial.
Cock crows twice.
Field Lilies, herbicide sprayed.
Sparrow dies.
One more pest aside.
Call in air strikes.
Difficult breathing.
Ashen faces.
Profit warning.
Feet of clay.

Obesity. So much borrowing
liquidity pumped into red faced Banks, soon to burst like so many rivers around the world. T&Cs, rules views apply.

Debt wound cycles.
Casting spells.
Broken by a X.
Incarcerated anxieties are extreme manifestations of a society involved in a process of estrangement from the healing power of nature.

(Climate) scientists sometimes
seem to find difficulty in
seeing beyond the narrow
confines of their self interests,
the latest bulletin implies.
Senses thus assaulted.
Science, technology

Inaction is never too late.

Soil Care.

Festival dreams in

Swooping low on lakes and rivers, to farmhouse eaves, gathering swallows nest

Tangled web.
Queen of Hearts, Judy,

bakes tarts heading for the fayre.
King Punch steals those tarts.
Judy scolds, Punch disagrees.
Clapperboards will not rest.
Dog takes sausages.
Crocodile takes what's left.
Sly thief steals jewels & crowns.
Judy lies crumpled.
Punch drops down dead.
Crocodile smiles.
Puppet theatre curtain closes.
Gull lands on roof.
Spray flies in from the sea.

The Art you know comes courtesy of Big Polluters.
We are all part of the Big Pollution equation. Work it out.

Hands on crooks, sheep stumble to mechanised slaughter.
There's a risk of knowing.
