Gods of Good Tidings
POETRY FORMAT, 6 Jan 2020
Oh Gods of Good Tidings
Why create these Weather Rings
Russia basking in a Summer Show
Inviting us all to its Warm Glow
India back in a Winter Fury
Shivering in the Sunless Glory
What has happened in Australia
Bush Fires can call you Blemishalia
Oh God show us a little Mercy
Without speaking a little Heresy
So the world can live and Breathe
Here on the Earth and not Recede
Into the Airless, Lonely cosmic Retreats
