Diamond In The Swamp’ Pt. 3

Diamond In The Swamp Pt. 3 short poem

Photo by Martin Clifton

The sprawling mangrove forest shifted away
from the giant concrete thoroughfare that has
come to traverse through their murky habitation.
Their host of wild mammals and their uncut barbaric lifestyle
have retreated farther to their dense recluse of primitivity.
New hosts that now found pleasure on the thoroughfare
have come to be their companion.

These, blaze the highway in a breathtaking cruising hunks
of metal, with whining noise and expelling greasily pollutant
that sucks the freshness of the environment.
The murky fragrance of swamp, characterized by decaying mangrove leaves and mud; mixed with organic excretion is gradually easing out to these new pollutants of scorched
greasy gas being emitted from the speeding metal hunks.
