MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Sudden Shift’

It may be healing
For whatever feeling
To go to the forest
Breathe air at its best


Cookies and tea
Fell inside me
Turn a new leaf
No more beef


Walk or ride
Move with pride
No smelly fumes
Silence no booms


Crack of a dawn
My daily yawn
Instead of papers
Fresh flower vapors


Coffee forgotten brew
Kombucha with a dew
Clap my hands to chant
My diet now fully plant


Om and hum feel the beat
Lift your bum bare both feet
Rite of passage in middle age
Breaking the bond fleeing the cage


Touch of breeze on my face
Being gifted divine grace
Sudden shift from foggy mind
Walking gently and being kind


Now stop and breathe

MIDNIGHT POETRY “Mission For Zero Emission”

Mission For Zero Emission

From place A to B we move
Without the need to walk
New way of transport
Is in the mainstream talk

Soon comes time for elections
Who gets our vote?
Not an easy selection
Tender for a quote

In the heat of preparation
Parties on each side
Try for our stimulation
Cuddling kids who cried

Trouble is, the pretty ties
Giving talks and promises
Too soon turn to lies
Following change of premises

Ozone shield is full of holes
And nowhere any rain
OUT with fuel that gets burned
Bring on EVs! Let’s use the brain

Sleek as a smile, dream to drive
Old habits die-hard and slow
For future gen to thrive
CO emissions have to go

It’s no brainer for the fans
In the love with Tesla
Sexy wheels with zero fumes
‘Safety first!’ reports the test lab

Comes the time future is here
Tons of EVs on the show
Range anxiety no longer a fear
Charger networks quickly grow

The big little island in its solitude
Pretending to be proficient
Living in denial of magnitude
That ICE cars are being efficient
