A Plume

There’s a plume out there approaching.
Streaming in the sky,
chuffing spreading down
and wide cross sea
and countryside.

A mess of doubt and claim,
as fine silt settles on the land,
blinkered sight. Unfocussed minds
on short term gain
and power play.

Suffocating sea grass flats,
denuding coral
coloured lines of fish
and dugongs habitat.

There’s a plume out there approaching,
spreading, settling wide.

Suffocating in its path,
blinkered sight,
unfocused minds.
