DUMPING...OR SHARING?
Poetry by Noelene Sanderson

There goes another load
of apples; pears;
another mortal stab for those
whose lives have meant long years
of seeing affluence
maintain its standard, and support the quid -
the precious dollar -
while other folk in dire poverty wallow,
with puzzlement, and tears . . .

. . .Deep tears
might be remorsefully shed,
before we'll bring our planet
to the end of selfish gain, of greed,
of endless sorrow;
before we'll take the step
of sharing around the world its bounteous goods;
and reaching brotherhood -
an end of horror!
