Tides of Change

[Baut Images: High Tide]


The tides of change are coming.

The planet rotates on it's axis.

Lorna Doone plays the piano.

You sip a cup of Jasmine tea,

Whilst I rid the skies of lies.

The tides of change are coming.
Species dying every day.
Miley Cyrus gets a ticket.
As a meatloaf burns in the oven,
And I play the game to win it.

The tides of change are coming.
More mercury in Blue-fin Tuna.
And banksters filled with dread.
So, read that book Priscilla,
As I write for Natasha Head.

The tides of change are coming.
As the grids break down again.
Time for Project Runway to end.
Now, go grab a muffin Amanda,
And I'll have a sandwich of sand.

The tides of change are coming.
Doesn't matter what we want.
The battle is close at hand.
So listen to wind and water,
For it's happening 'cross the land.

The tides of change are here!

The planet careens in it's orbit.

Elton John smashes his piano.

You sip a bottle of water,

Whilst I'm off to the Isle of Skye.

2012 Roger Allen Baut

Once again you have a poetic triplet
composed 
of an image, poem and video.

  2. This is great, how you bring it on home and root and ground the change coming through the repetition of the phrase and the stark details of modern life. Well done. I can feel there's a change coming!

  4. Lots of smiles rippling through this, followed by so many harsh truths.
    "Whilst I rid the skies of lies." Love that.

  5. They say that nothing is constant but change... and that I believe to be true. We cannot hope to stem that tide, but only hope it does not wash over us and drown us.

  6. Yes, indeed, and I agree with that, "...nothing is constant but change..." And this is all but an instant in time, when measured on the grand scale of Planet Earth...but, as with all things, the phoenix will rise once more. Thanks again for stopping by and sharing your thoughts Samuel! Roger ☺
