the world is burning for profit

and a hundred thousand animals will die

a million trees

and a billionaire will smile

all the way to the bank

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Wonderful poem(s). In my opinion it will come to an end very soon. Since half an year here they are airing about increasing attacks on politicians. It’s funny, because such things only happen in the run-up to a real state crisis.A short word game “English-German”. Believer in German means Gläubiger, in a metaphysic manner. Gläubiger has the further importance of a creditor. 😉 We are all believers! :-)) Michael

      2. If Germany goes into recession I don’t know what will happen. No good, that’s for sure.
        Interesting about Gläubiger. Believers only loan their good will. They expect to be paid back.

      3. Gläubiger too. They expect to be paid soon, on earth, not in heaven. 🙂
        Dont worry with Germany in recession. They need only to give back the money, they saved for heading over to Eastern Europe. Lol

      4. The could, and Germany would force it, but why – sorry for bashing my own homeland – does Germany not take more of the refugees. They always try to count the former eastern expelled from 1949 to 1970 as migrants. That wrong, very wrong.

      5. Ah, that’s another problem. As long as there is an inexhaustible supply of cheap foreign labour, immigrants thankful for any work at all, the hourly rate for the most menial jobs is kept lower than legal minimums.

      1. Yup. With the climate change and wacky weather, it really feels like the beginning of the end of days and nature is getting revenge with all the pollution and everything.
