Lack of Food?

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark


Will there come a time
When we all search for food,
And food is nowhere to be found or when
food is not enough for all animals and humans?

Will there come a time
When climate change shakes our altar
Of convenience in the major change of seasons
And the total disruption of planting and harvesting and
The collapse of production and technological innovation?


Will there come a time
When more storms and cyclones,
hurricanes and super typhoons, earthquakes
floods, landslides and fires all suck our attention?
And we discover that food is nowhere to be found
or when food is so scarce, so scarce for all animals and humans?

_____________
Question after a report on climatic change and the effect on food and acquisition of food.

SPRING IS HERE
Nature and Mankind
When Elephants Cry
