Reflections on the Surface

Cry Wolf No Longer

London, England

A ‘lost tribe’ of Amazonian Indians has been discovered by a passing plane. Strangely coloured people pictured on the ground, pointing bows and arrows upwards at the sky in fierce defiance.

Their days are numbered.
Imagine this clash of cultures as the ‘civilized world’ flies by, soaring with ease over the still pristine forests where the ‘primitives’ exist.
We, in the other world look on, fascinated by the strangeness of it all.

They are trapped in a timewarped existence that is probably doomed, as the Amazonian Rain forests are hacked and bull-dozed to destruction.

Our 21st century civilization is poised on the brink too. Poised on the edge of a cliff, about to fall off into uncharted territory.

Fifty years from now, the gross complacency that has infected the minds of politicans and some degenerate scientists will be recognised for what it is: mankind’s last grasp upon a dying planet which has been wrecked beyond destruction by greed, short term thinking and sheer bloody lunacy.

This is a time for the ‘destruction of innocence’; for a vigorous wake up call to us all in our daily lives.
So much that we take utterly for granted is to taken away by the changes about to come, as the Earth meets tipping point after tipping point.

With the Amazon rain forests gone in not too many decades from now, we will all fear for our lives.
