To clear trees and undergrowth more quickly, corporations use explosives to murder the trees and send the wildlife running, flying, crawling, slithering and tiptoing for their lives. Little survives.
This piece is an expression of anger and grief at the wanton despoiling of the Earth's most beautiful, diverse and thrilling ecology that has to stop NOW. The verse, a Quintain by Bridget reads:-
Bombs in the Amazon
Defenceless against attack
Earth’s lungs torn
The return from this knock-back?
Four thousand desolate years
