Latymer Laureate

The Latymer Laureate Ivan Halpenny has written a poem to highlight the effects of climate change.

Space man
His skin is made of stars they say
That twinkle like the milky way
Satellites orbit his moon ears
Space man’s eyes are planet spheres
His hairs are strings of solar systems
His breath is buzzing telecommunications
His teeth are shattered meteorites
That can’t taste and can’t bite
His hands are swirling galaxies
That hold his galactic fantasies
But space man has a cruel disease
A cancer called humanity
Which rips his ears with radiation
And fill is mouth with air pollution
And char his moons and smash his stars
And line his face with plastic scars

One day when the space man dies
The humans will apologise
Present him with a Nobel prize
Whilst trees fall down and car sales rise
