Slipping Between the Cracks – Terza Rima 4-Six

a can of niggling worms looms as I write
I’m obsessed, unable to ignore
the innocents who’ve drifted from our sight

fractured families, children not cared for
species, numbers dwindling, resources razed
slipping between cracks; lost forevermore

precious treasures overlooked, throngs unfazed,
our better angels quickly losing ground,
their god is greed, they lavish him with praise


Terza Rima Challenge…As you can see, Jane, the abyss sucked me in. Hoping to round this series out on a more personal melancholy note…we shall see!
