Friday 15

On Friday 15 this month
the world wide movement
Schools Strike 4 Climate Change
took place around the world.
Our high school students that
day demonstrated out of school,
gave media interviews, called
for urgent measures to halt
climate change, save their future.

On Friday 15 this month
our front flat neighbour retired
for good, selling back his taxi cab,
withdrawing from the taxi company
staying home each day starting an
exciting new life. What now ?

On Friday 15 this month
in two peaceful Christchurch
mosques a gun man sprayed
bullets through two congregations
prayer killing fifty wounding
forty two men, women, children.
city lock down, ambulances
police cars sirens screaming
armed police walking streets.

Children and adult survivors
of mighty earthquakes
now traumatised again.
