Oil Painting


Oil Painting


Grotesque synthetics change the picture of life’s landscaping

Scraping the colors of sand and waves away with an oily smear


Cursed by greedy circumstance

Creation is Given no choice or defense from a penetrating glob of



Darkened waters crust from an unrelenting black hole

Humanity is left stirring in a slick soupy sludge


Sticky footprints leave imprints of liquid graves washed upon barren


No way to ever erase the scars that etch out extinction


The guilty will drown with no way to cleanse their souls

While the innocent are mired in the seepage that consumes them

It was a sad event and it keep happening with even larger so called leaks that polute our oceans and our creature. I have read several poems on this theme and this is excellent; greed pollutes everything, including our souls. Love, peace and freedom, Olan.

Serious is good - especially when it is about horrific subjects.... thank you for taking the time to feel the real life drama!

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
