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.
