A Crying Shame
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE WORLD,
AS WE KNOW IT??
These are questions that Caroline Parkes is asking in her poetry.
Everything she writes is aimed at making people think about the world around us, the problems we face today, the difficulties we are leaving behind for our children.
She believes that we can still make a difference if we pull together,
understand that we are owed nothing that we have not contributed to,
and try our absolute best to remedy the dreadful harm that we have created.
Not just to the environment, but for the next generation, who, she believes, have been dealt a very bad hand.
Her mantra about the western world is that we are experiencing ‘the end of an empire'. Whether that is for good, or bad, only time will tell.
