To be a poet one needs the six P’s – the pencil, the paper, the perception, the passion, the persistence and the unshakable persuasion that the poem is in fact possible and attainable. - Grace Perry

Environmental shape poem


                          nature sacrificed
                     for material gain, csg
                  and                                coal
            for                                           cheap
          light.                                         damns                                       
                end                 
                                                          the
                                                      flow.
                                                 the
                                                axe
                                              stops
                                               the
                                           growth
                                               of
                                             trees

                                            OVER.


Terrible poem! It was just an experimentation of shape and of expressing political concerns in poetry, I think that that is not an easy feet without making the poem sound forced and contrived.
