Dumb dumb dying…

dumb dumb dying

in the eyes of prying

so it is now

and so it will be

for many more days to come

oh no, don’t lift a finger

nor should you stop or linger

coz there is really nothing to do

what’s to done is done

nothing can now be undone

coz its dumb dumb dying

in the eyes of prying

oh, watch the lands a-sinking

watch the hills a-gliding

hear the trees stop crying

no more birds are chirping

coz it’s dumb dumb dying

in the eyes of prying

surging waters rally

buildings come up silly

minting money filling pockets

children crying not to bother

coz it’s dumb dumb dying

in the eyes of prying

preach the gods non existent

sing the songs that meaning not a thing

tell the stories if any

laugh out before sorrows too many

coz it’s dumb dumb dying

in the eyes of prying

PS: Sinking cities across the world, climate change is real

  1. Among the most telling acts in this tragedy:

    buildings come up silly
    minting money filling pockets

    In addition to the halting rhytm, which then changes to a wave-like flow–each line’s sounds calling attention to the meaning, I especially appreciate how “silly” works here.– in at least three different but relevant ways, whether intended or not.. In general, throughout your poem the varied, seemingly child-like music alone conveys what many feel-about this issue– frustrated, puzzled, angry, sad. (That’s part of the appeal of poetry. Sometimes words or phrases take on a life of their own. But you already know that, I can tell.))

    I’ll pass this one on, but I’ll use the PS line as a title (without “PS”). Nice job on a not-nice prospect..
