Pay Attention
The waters are receding
Pay Attention
The Bees are dying
Pay Attention!
The Last Black Rhino stands alone
Looking back into my memory of a gentler time
A time when Evolutionary Dead End was not such a possible idea

Pay Attention
The soldiers gather
They are so very young, not yet 13, with seething anger
They pick up their Russian made weapons
They scream threats to us as we drive through the throng of children Eyes red with tears
Parents laying dead on the ground
Brother gone
Sister gone
Family no more
