Summer 2020

heat depletes
hot exhausts
depending on where you’re from
sun is more foe than friend
still we stoke the fire
like locomotive lunatics
running out of rail
heaving coal into the hopper
Who? Earth?
No, her kids.
They’re racing cheetahs
to her funeral.

Runaway train
full of dirty coal
and puerile goals
and, don’t yet forget,
nuclear weapons.

Greg Kennedy, SJ is assigned to the spiritual exercises ministry at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario. Novalis will publish Greg's book - “Reupholstered Psalms” - on March 1, 2020.

    Thanks Fr. Greg! Indeed we are like those “racing cheetahs”….along with nuclear weapons! Scary!
