Today we are concerned
About pollution
And the environment
The smog and
Leaded petrol
As I watched
Four year old Emer
Bury her head
In the cushions
On the couch
When television at 6 o'clock
Was switched on again
And she screamed
"I don't want to see the news"
I began to wonder
Are we creating
More pollution
In our homes today
From the type of
Television programmes
That we are given to watch
Than any of the political issues
We scream so loudly about
We may be trying to
Save the world
From another catastrophe
But do our children
Have to see
So much violence

Mary Guckian

 The only ethical decision is to take responsibility for our own existence and that of our children.
Make it now.
