It’s Time

a - it's time.jpg

There’s a staggering level of ignorance
amongst the powers that be
at least that’s the excuse I make for them
how else to explain their greed?
They’re told in facts what’s happening
yet they fail to comprehend
their riches and inflated ideas
won’t help them to survive.

Too much value placed in standing still
too much money thrown into the wind
too much too-muchness all around
it won’t matter in the end.

When wasteland stretches far and wide
will they still deny to save their pride?
When ashes fill their swollen mouths
will they still refuse to realise
the time is now to take a stance
the time is now to make a difference
the time is now to save their home
the only one worth investing in

without the earth beneath our feet
your bricks and mortar mean nothing

the time is now it’s running out
don’t wait until it’s far too late 

it’s time
for us all
to act.
