Life is a Beach

The world is burning.

The heat suffocating.

Our leaders, can only extol

“Life is a beach”.



We sit on  a train

staring into the abyss.

Is this action, really sane?

My fears, you dismiss.

The abyss, coming closer,

the end ever nearer.

You think you’re the composer

but that is a veneer.

You’re but a puppet

on a cut-price budget.
