Poetry – Profit Continues

Profit Continues

 

As oceans rise and lakes dry,

Forests become desert land;

Rain fails and crops fry,

Many species make their last stand.

 

As coral bleach and fish die

Still mankind fails to understand.

Carbon continues to fill the sky

A stratagem remains unplanned.

 

Profit continues as the reason why

And fertile soil becomes sand.

Desperate people migrate or die

While pompous politicians grandstand.
