What Did You Do While the Planet Was Plundered?
In this video spoken word poet and activist Drew Dellinger recites his moving poem, Hieroglyphic Stairway.
This poem is dedicated to my father, a retired English teacher and lover of poetry.
it’s 3:23 in the morning
and I’m awake
because my great great grandchildren
won’t let me sleep
my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet was plundered?
what did you do when the earth was unravelling?
