Hard Times are Coming – a poem

Hard Times are coming

 

From the waterworld to the droughts –

Hard times are coming.

From the Sahara ocean to the Artic desert

Hard times are on their way.

 

Growing crops on mountain tops –

Hard times are coming.

From the arid Amazon to the flooded Gobi

Hard times are on their way.

 

Fishing over Holland, trawling Bangladesh –

Hard times are coming.

Our cities under water our fields now sea

Hard times are on their way.

If we allow climate change to occur we will unleash forces that will devastate our civilisations and bring an end to everything we have.

In the past, when we were small in number and nomadic hunter gatherers, we simply moved to higher ground. Not so easily with eight million and the infrastructure and agriculture on low lying land. Not so easy with the need to feed eight billion.

Hard times are coming.
