Comes a Time – #writephoto

Comes a Time

Comes a Time

Hate spews

                  from rhetoric

to VIOLENCE

 

Disease spreads on
the thin ice of prevention
eager to feed on
             the waiting pool
 

Oceans rise
                         Deserts dry
 

Poverty
             Hunger
hold up their bowls as
                 the markets plunge
 

We stave off these threats
try to reverse them
             for those we cherish
 

But do we seal them in
                         a stone fortress
a virtual crypt
                their fate sealed
before it’s delivered?
 

Comes a time when

                          it is our children’s world

 
I’ve used the photo provided by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo) for her Thursday Photo Prompt – Crypt – #writephoto as a metaphor.
