Bloggers’ Bliss — See our streetwear come to life

Not to be resurrected

What would happen
if the fertile forests
of our glorious globe
all disappeared
and the once
robust rivers
ran dry
while the birds
of the heavens
died of thirst
and the trees
stopped growing
never to cast
a single spot
of shade
ever again?

what would happen
if the bees
stopped humming
and the
butterflies
stopped coming
to our once fertile
now grey gardens
which perished
through pure
deprivation?

what would happen
to our sunny skies
when bright blue
should turn bleak-brown
and the once clean
fresh air
became
too poisonous
too putrid
to breathe?

what would happen
to our erstwhile
precious earth
if we kill it
for our own
satisfaction
selfish gains
poignant pleasures
and gluttonous greed?

will we all die
a ghastly grim death
of thirst, starvation
or sheer
suffocation
will the suffering
last longer
than an hour
a day
or a week?
