A World Like This

Manchester-based poet Mark Quinn (otherwise known as The Mancunian Poet) has shared this exclusive poem with Talking About My Generation, which will be featured in his next book.

I look at the world;

the ice caps melt,

the fires burn

and the humans hate,

the animals die

and the trees are gone,

the dolphins cry

and the elephants sigh.

I don’t want to live in a world like this.

The sea rises,

the land gets small,

the population grows

whilst the hurricane blows,

the planet gets warmer

and the carbon gets higher.

I don’t want to live in a world like this.

Fossil fuels we burn,

methane gas is on the turn,

we need to stop today,

this won’t just go away.

I don’t want to live in a world like this.
