SEALS, WOLVES AND WHALES

SEALS, WOLVES AND WHALES

 

SEALS, WOLVES AND WHALES

HONEY BEES, MOTHS AND TIGERS

ALL CRYING OUT FOR HELP

I WANT TO SAVE THEM ALL

CHILDREN IN AFGHANISTAN

SYRIA, GAZA AND NEW JERSEY

ALL CRYING OUT FOR HELP

I WANT TO SAVE THEM ALL

IT’S NOT COMPASSION FATIGUE

THAT STOPS ME FROM HELPING

BUT THE REALIZATION THAT BY

TRYING TO DO EVERYTHING

MEANS IT IS LIKELY THAT

I END UP DOING NOTHING

YET EVERY SINGLE DAY

I AM BOMBARDED WITH

REQUESTS TO “LIKE MY CAUSE”

AND I FEEL OVERWHEALMED

AM I ALONE IN FEELING THIS

OVERT SENSATION OF MASS GUILT?

I WANT TO BRING THE BUFFALOS

THE OTTERS AND THE OSPREYS BACK

STOP GOVERNMENTS DESTROYING

THE COUNTRYSIDE AND THE AIR

KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE IN

UN-NECESSARY ACTS OF WAR

CLOSING SCHOOLS AND FACTORIES

PAYING BILLIONS TO BANKERS

AND BUILDING USELESS FOLLIES

BUT I CAN’T AND I DO FEEL

AS IF I AM BEING MADE TO FEEL

THAT IT IS ALL MY FAULT

STILL I WEAR MY BADGES AGAINST

FRACKING, NAZIS AND THE BOMB

I CLICK ON THE PETITIONS

SEND EMAILS TO MPS

WEAR MY HEART ON MY SLEEVE

AM I AN ARMCHAIR ACTIVIST?

PASS ME MY PIE AND PEAS

MUST EAT THEM QUICKLY

THE WOLVES ARE AT THE DOOR.
