A poem by Ian Badcoe
Soap Bubble, a poem by Ian Badcoe about the bubbles on bubbles that humanity has been blowing over the centuries: system on system built on all too finite natural resources, but acting as if they would last forever. Bubbles in the economic sense, working fine while they stumble along, but hollow if you look too close, and building up huge ecological and social impacts for when they fail. This issue has been of great importance to me for a long time and so I have taken up the challenge and set the poem to music; creating a haunting and tragic message that many won't find comfortable, but which no-one can really ignore.
