Solution Of Pollution



The city air, thickly stifled
and putrid.
Fumes, toxic and dense,
with the streets,
polluted.

Fumes of motor vehicles,
factories, industrial plants,
shops and business vents.
Spewing, coughing out into the atmosphere,
an invisible gas,
displacing oxygen and natural
clean air,
at human cost and expense.

Carbon emissions,  other gaseous
chemicals too,
being breathed in by everyone,
day by day.
Unaware of the toxicity,
affects on health,
that prevails,
with destruction of life forms,
that have no choice, no voice
or say.

Despite regulation,
cleaner and greener emissions and
controls,
the populus of the world is responsible,
in creating such pollution.
Thus, leading to the demise of life on earth,
for it is in the interests of everyone,
to clean up the air and in who's hands,
hold the solution.

Victor Gatenby

My name is Victor John Gatenby, born in 1958 and native of North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. I am a researcher of genealogy and started to write poetry in 2002, after retiring from public service. Having a creative and compassionate mind, for helping people, that is in my scope to do, I find that by writing poetry, not only expresses my life thoughts, but I feel, gives meaning and inspiration to others. Whether it be fictional or based on fact, the poetry I write will always be read differently and have a differing meaning from one person to the next. My aim is to give a pleasure to the reader without the poetry being too complex or deep, so as not to be understood or enjoyed. Much of my poetry is based upon life events and perceptions. I find that works well and I can draw upon my own experiences, to put into poetry, a literary art form.Those that read my poetry, I hope gain something from it and enjoy reading the same. At the same time, I am committed to contributing to Poetry.com and it's community, by reading the work of other's and appropriately recording constructive criticism and rating work, without prejudice. I expect my work to be critiqued also with respect and common sense. I have a zero tolerant attitude towards any inappropriate work, words, remarks etc.V J Gatenby (Author) more…
