Listen by Vivien Foulkes-James

Listen to his call, its a warning,
a cry of despair for this world.
Unless we accept responsibility
for our feckless ways.
Constrain our want for more,
always bigger, always faster.
Like the willow tit, we’ll be
brought to the edge of extinction.
Will we listen to the scientists
while we can, before time runs out?
Will farmers grow trees,
save habitat for our wildlife?
Will we limit our population?
And while we still can, listen to his call.
