Biosphere

To paraphrase a friend, I’d say
That life has broken out all over

But what would I know? I only
Work my corner, at the intersection
Of 5th and Biosphere, where
New attention is being paid to the same
Problems that have plagued humankind
For as long as there have been humankind or
Unkind, as the case may be

It’s amazing how busy
This one corner is, though

You go to teach and end up
Learning more than you leave,
For life is lived
So many ways we never care to understand

Yes, there is much to grieve
And be justifiably outraged by;
But there is great heroism
In many of those unable to

Log on

Speak out

or

Avail themselves of many opportunities

But who will live
With as much joy as they

Can create
