Homo sapiens

Claiming our Gods,
yet acting like God,
we treat our whole world with contempt.
Gifted with brains
to break free our chains,
one would think we would try to attempt

to cherish our planet,
much sooner than it
fall prey to our greedy endeavour.
Respecting the worth
of unique Mother Earth
is survival; it's not even clever.

Rewards

Rewards

If you want respect
you should expect
to show others
the same consideration.

Don't bang on
about your rights
unless you're prepared
to shoulder
your responsibilities.

When seeking
reward,
be prepared
for some hard work.

Love too,
has to be earned;
it is never unconditional,
unless you're a dog.

Bag it, bin it

Bag it, bin it

She fancied a bit of a walk
but dog wanted more of a run,
so, stopping with friends for a talk
man's best friend set off for some fun.

Engrossed with her chattering group,
a whole lot of things on her mind,
she failed to see dog have his poop;
not surprisingly then, she was fined.
