hand-to-hand from here inside

peoples climate march, manhattan, sunday 9/21/14

 

we were nearly half a million
amazingly brought together in one place
by peoplesclimate.org

350.org and avaaz.org both
pulling strings behind the scenes
all around the globe

thanx to julie of some initiative & energy
connecting to bus at the time closest to our central fl
then getting us there right on the mark in her car

to lovely hanna of greenpeace insight & generosity
taking us in her charter bus, charlotte nc to manhattan
oozing with those arranging skills, no fewer charms

to holly, michael, + all new charlotte friends
a faraway georgia couple too of familiar age
all making the trip one unforgettable family spree

we came to support UN sec gen ban ki moon
assembling world leaders two days later
to get on top of this thing at last

hit-on-the-head author
naomi klein, you inspired my lens
with those timely new pages

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING:
Capitalism vs. The Climate
your pen, our feet sure to bring us home
