Tellus’s Plea. a poem by Anjum Wasim Dar

Anjum Wasir Dar

Tellus's Plea

Call Cyclops!
People with two eyes have become blind!
Have lost their sane mind
have lost the spirit of being kind.
They lie, cheat, deceive and rob
do not leave a single grain, on the cob
Call Cyclops!
for he may see
the cruelty killing and rape
the guilty making good their escape.
Call Cyclops!
he will catch the culprits
and put them behind bars or
send them for ever up to the stars.
Call Poseidon!
To clean the oceans and rivers
to save sea animals and food for fishes.
Call Aeolus!
To clean the air. purify the
atmosphere, increase oxygen everywhere.
All are mythical creatures
No wonder the world is not getting cleaner!

Darcie Friesen Hossack is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers. Her short story collection, Mennonites Don’t Dance, was a runner-up for the Danuta Gleed Award, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading Evergreen Award for Adult Fiction. Citing irreverence, the book was banned by the LaCrete Public Library in Northern Alberta. Having mentored with Giller finalists Sandra Birdsell (The Russlander) and Gail Anderson Dargatz (Spawning Grounds, The Cure for Death by Lightening), Darcie is now completing her first novel where, for a family with a Seventh-day Adventist father and a Mennonite mother, the End Times are just around the corner. Darcie is also a four time judge of the Whistler Independent Book Awards, and a career food writer. She lives in Northern Alberta, Canada, with her husband, international award-winning chef, Dean Hossack.
