Time we cared – a poem

Time we cared

 

Ice is melting – water rising

Up to their knees

And still denying.

 

Bird croaks it’s last fanfare

Frog’s last gasp

Of heated air.

 

We carry on without a care.

 

Heat increases – animals frying

Floods and droughts –

Not surprising.

 

Still they believe scientists are lying.

 

Concrete and plastic – land and sea

I’m alright Jack

Don’t worry about me!

 

Trophy hunting – forest clearing

Sounds to me

That no-ones hearing!

 

At least that’s what I’m a fearin’.

 

Making room for bird and tree

Before they pass

Into history.

 

Buried under life’s debris.

 

But it’s always the cash that counts

Stashed away

In large amounts.

 

Whatever they do it’s the cash

As long as they’ve got

Their share of the stash.

 

I think we’re heading for one ginormous crash.

I wrote this for the politically motivated climate change deniers! May they wake up soon!

I'd like to hear from you...
