Pale Blue Dot--By George L. Ellison--England

Pale Blue Dot

Aria’s Couplets and “B”s

The pale blue dot that is our planet earth
Has been the slave of its creatures since birth
From the big bang without a doubt

It has never complained no matter what
It’s done all we asked and that’s been a lot
Now we are the slaves and we pout

Mother Earth’s future will be very bleak
We must slave away solutions to seek
Or live in constant fear throughout

We face earth’s ire on this long road ahead
Climate warming it is our biggest dread
Time for us to slave or get out

  1. This poem is technically part two of the poem I submitted in April entitled "Woodland Prayer" having split the poem into two I decided to call the section "Pale Blue Dot" in a nod the reference Cal Sagan made about Planet Earth when vied from outer space !

    I hope you enjoy the poem!


  2. I did enjoy the poem, and we need to keep vigilance of keeping our planet free from pollution and degradation. This is what we need to do as proud inhabitants of this Earth, the only Earth there is! Great poem.

  3. Quite a perceptive write George. We do have an obligation to our Mother Earth and hopefully even though I cannot change the world I do my small part around me to take care of it. Thank you for sharing your talent.

  4. George
    I do what I can myself, like when I see someone litter, I gently throw it away myself and recycle what I can. I am not one for confrontation, but I do believe we must save our planet. Good poem.

  5. Thank you, Eleanor Michael, for the following--

    At lease we now agree there is a problem.
