Poetry to inspire change series: IV – Three Lethal Imperfections by David Fell

Today’s post is first in a trio of blogs by our friend David Fell, author of The Economics of Enough. The first one is also the fourth episode in our poetry to inspire change series.

Three Lethal Imperfections

in blameless Sheffield
the fading of the great steel heat
cracks cold and sullen hairlines
into endless untold faces;
each eerie frozen scar
an etching from today
into tomorrow

in breathless Paris
the hand-held steel of terror
spits incandescent ignorance
upon tomorrow’s half-sketched barbs;
their names as unknown now
as they were

in heartless London
besuited men of money
weave filaments of yesterday into
uncontested writ
ensnaring us that they may
steal again the life we call

David Fell


For all you lovers or poetry and nature please save the 20th June for our next Steps Towards Sustainability. Once more we will be escaping London city life with James Payne leading us on an adventure through beautiful countryside before stopping for a delicious pub lunch where Olivia Sprinkel will take us on an exploration through the Poetry of Change. More details to come nearer the time.
