Poem: The World’s Problems

By Thiarry Bartholomew


Everybody’s waiting for somebody to do

What anybody could do

You could doubt me but it’s true.


You may have a different view

On a topic

But the issue goes way beyond you

And your aspect.


I wish I could grow feathers

And fly away forever

But that’s not the answer.


You may not think we’re tethered

But we’re all in this together.


No fleeing

Instead let’s start freeing

Ourselves and be better human beings.



No matter where you are is your land of birth.

It is a gift that we all must share

And treat with care.


But unlike a gift, it’s not for us alone

It’s like a family heirloom that we all must treasure for our future descendants to own.


So please don’t condone

This horrid littering thing

And do the right thing

Or we will all pay a loan


For the way we treated the earth

The only difference is ….

It would be so much worse.
