  Details   DMCA

Fearful to awaken to the rigours of the day, and fearful, of the ghosts, of midnight sleep

In a world of crises, growing, ever deep.


Fearful for my sovereign, sacred, safe, nesting place in life

Amidst, unending angst, and scary, stress and strife.


Fearful of Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma and Omicron

Absent, a supra-national, virus-defeating hero, like 007 - James Bond.


Fearful of accelerating, life threatening, climate change

As double-minded leaders, are dangerously short-ranged, or totally estranged.


Fearful of the Amazon rain forest, slash-and-burn, mayhem, and wild destruction of trees

A bio-diversity hazard; depleting prized tiger-cats, dolphins, macaws and honey bees.
