CATASTROPHES

Grain ship reaches horn, feeds old and newborn,
Just in time to prevent catastrophe.
Tumultuous floods destroy Pakistan,
Unstoppable, it’s a catastrophe.
Iodine pills handed out in Ukraine,
To prevent nuclear catastrophe.
Few workers get inflation proof wages,
It’s a cost of living catastrophe.
Rivers fill up with untreated sewage,
An ecological catastrophe.
Inflation runs wild as markets implode,
It’s an economic catastrophe.
In fact our whole sodding planet is fucked,
It’s a total global catastrophe!

Harry Rogers in the Red Bedroom 31st August 2022.
