Daffodils on St David-19’s Day

After storms and floods
From all man's ills
I rest from howling gale
Beside sweet daffodils

Fair the light this David's Day
They bend their heads as if in prayer
And take a moment to reflect
The monk who refrained from ale and meat

From flesh came this plague that sweeps the Earth
And to all our fears has given birth
While tides are rising and locusts swarm
We can't deny it's getting warm
And know that this is not the norm

Business as usual can't continue
When they lie on the news and mop their ague
One could argue that it's time for change
For climate change and social change
From the broken neoliberal

Let us bow our heads
Like the humble daffodil
And acknowledge in our hearts
That we've all had our fill
