anniversary poem 2019

anniversary poem 2019

my daughter’s birthday is come around
again sometimes I think it’s probably
better she succumbed to her own demons  
(though she claimed they weren’t her own)
for if she’d lived how could she endure our
present demonic days? nato/nafta threats   
threat to her british birthland – climate
catastrophe plus human greed and need  
gobbling up life on this puny pleasurable   
planet – worst of all thousands of lost kids
unnamed even but maybe I underestimate     
her – I bet her fury would be up she’d be   
fighting here beside us all to preserve
each other, our commonality, our world
