By Colin Ian Jeffery

PROMPT — Despite ...

We hear cries of children

Yet to be born

Descendants of our families

Calling out against global warming

Out of control and still rising.

Demanding why we failed them

Did not elect leaders of action

But politicians windy with words

Refusing to make hard decisions

That would have saved the world.


Colin Ian Jeffery is a modernist poet, a movement with development of imagism stressing clarity, precision in the economy of language. He has a strong reaction against war, tranny, and oppression of the truth. While unlike other poets in the modernist movement like Dylan Thomas and Ezra Pound, he has a profound faith in God. Colin writes from Caterham Surrey, England.
