‘Consequences’ – A poem by Andrew Diamond


Throw a pebble in the river

Spreading circles to the shore

Rippling outwards from the centre

Disappearing till no more.

So our actions, like the pebble,

Send their ripples, make their waves;

Intermingling all our circles

From our cradles to our graves.

No one knows what’s coming next

Unaware of the effects.

Will this lead to our destruction,

Will salvation be our end?

There’s one thing of which I’m certain;

I will never know, my friend!
