invasive species

there’re so many ways to keep score
you do it your way I’ll do it mine

those thousands dying from war each day
could care less about climate change

cool winds and secret agent men
come and go from man-made skyscrapers

continental shifts and breakaway ice
only separate us more

tug of war versus mother nature’s pull
nobody’s always winning

today’s swords turn into swallows
flying high at the magician’s command

  1. I really like these:
    “continental shifts and breakaway ice”
    “tug of war versus mother nature’s pull”
    “today’s swords turn into swallows”
