Bitter Harvest

As you sow, so shall ye reap.
You will taste fully the bitter fruits
of the misery you have planted in
the soil and people if you do not change.

Have you learned nothing?
Death brings only more death.
It is not too late to pull back from the brink.
Stop now before the whole world
burns in the fires you have created!

• “Bitter Harvest” is from Luke Eastwood’s recently published book of poetry entitled Through the Cracks in the Concrete the Wilderness Grows
