Hey Sooz

Posted to Poetry and Politics

You are so right about one thing. People don't care. What they can't see and can't fathom they pay little heed to. As you well know I'm no fan of man and it is a scary prospect when you think about what the future holds. The polar ice caps are melting at an alarming rate but because people can't actually see it they don't care. Our little island here could be totally submerged in years to come. 'But fuck it right, I mean I'll be dead' is the sort of half assed reaction I get from my friends when I broach the subject. It's the glacial pace of environmental issues that cause apathy in most people. By the time we as a race get around to giving these issues the respect and attention they deserve I fear it could be too late. Nice piece though Soozen at lest someone puts the effort in eh ?
