The Wrecking Machine

It’s coming from all sides

But mainly from the right.

It’s cloaked in many guises,

In the shadows of the night.

It’s breaking up the Union,

It’ll soon break up the States.

It fears the enemy within,

At heart it’s full of hate.

It’s turned the truth upon its head

And placed a child upon the throne.

Cries wolf when it is challenged;

A massive rolling stone.

Watch how it cuts the funds,

Needed to save the world.

Boosting the use of fossil fuels,

It fracks the earth till all’s unfurled.

Watch, listen now, to the glaring truth.

It turns deaf ears when science cries,

As though it is mere whim,

And more discoveries then denies.

Filling government with corporate men

And then, dismantling regulations.

Fuelling avarice and greed,

It pockets billions in elation.

Consumed by thoughts of deeds so foul,

That even it can’t sleep at night.

Bent on destroying human life,

Well past the tipping point all right.

It plans to make the world one totalitarian state.

We’d better join together before it is too late.

Our Earth – a rubbish dump?

Those who live inland don’t to see what those of us who live on the coast do, every day, during the Sout West Monsoon. Less beach and more rubbish including tons of plastic. Caring volunteers with little help from government clean beaches everywhere.

We may be fighting a losing battle but there is no excuse not to fight.

By 2050, our oceans will have more plastic trash than fish.

It’s shameful. Half of the plastic made we use just once and throw out, choking our seas and all the animals in it.

But in days, our governments can stem this tide when they meet at a historic summit to outline their clean ocean commitments. Public pressure just got #2 polluter Indonesia to commit to a 70% reduction in plastic waste! Now we need to go after the other top polluters.

If one million of us get behind a global call the Head of the UN Environment Programme will announce our petition from the summit podium and work with us to push countries to ban single-use plastics and let our oceans breathe again.

Join AVAAZ in the fight if you care.

Happy Birthday

Your birthday was a special day.

Your tiny body from this world did come.

Your mother smiled the pain away.

Your father shed a tear and some.

Each year another candle’s lit

In memory of that wondrous day.

With close friends you laugh and sit

And celebrate in many ways.

 As you grow the flame burns bright,

Then flickers in the winds of time.

Dimming in the fading light;

Sweet memories flashing through your mind.

So you don’t forget when you were born

Cakes get bigger one by one.

More candles the globe to warm

Till one day the fire is gone.

Life is short, the days are long

But you dear friend are going strong.

I’ll see you soon; till then so long.

But now please listen to this song.

How can bloggers get more likes and comments?

If no one LIKES a post or COMMENTS on it the author may reasonably assume the post is of no, or little, value.

Then we need to reconsider what we are writing. Posts that fall on deaf ears may need to be trashed or re-written otherwise they are just redundant clutter. Culling and re-writing successful posts is important as a blog evolves and attracts new readers. A blog should never become cluttered and bogged down with irrelevant posts. Readers are lazy so by the time a blog has accumulated 250+ posts, even if many are still good and relevant, they will be buried deep under the latest posts and will seldom, if ever, be read again.

Why I don’t understand what President Donald Trump says? – PART 3

On 26 January 2017 Donald Trump gave his first interview, after becoming president, to ABC News.

When I listened to the interview I was confused. So, in a quiet moment, I decided to analyse the transcript to see if I could understand exactly what his responses to the questions posed by David Muir, the interviewer, meant. I have to admit that it proved to be a rather difficult task and I am left just as confused now as I was then.
