The task

The Teacher knows
Yet
The Students will not listen
And all the while
The Earth turns
Closer to destruction

So She goes to consult
The Oracle
Its reply
‘Who knows’
Is confounding at best
The Shamans too
Have closed their ears
The Dreamers
Have gone to sleep
And all the while
The Earth turns
Closer to destruction

Each and every day
Many species die
The seasons come
And go
But in her bones
She knows
The sun shines
Brighter
And the rains
Though torrential
Mostly stay away
Yet it is her task
To impart knowledge;
After all “Isn’t she
A Teacher?”
With this thought in mind
She realised
She is not alone!
In one great swoop
Her friends arrive;
The Teachers of the World,
Together they hatch a plan
To get the message across;
“The Earth and Humankind
Are mutually inclusive
Take care of the land
And
It will take care of you.”
And thus
The Task begins
