Poetry – Desperately Denying

Desperately Denying

Carbon Dioxide on the rise

Temperatures through the roof.

Extreme weather patterns

Become the new truth,

While deniers demand proof.

Low lands and cities are under flood

As heatwaves threaten life.

Droughts destroy the crops

As mass migration creates strife,

People struggle for their life.

Forest’s die as the climates change

Animals desperately seek other range.

Humans fight to rearrange

As the world becomes increasingly strange.

Opher – 3.2.2019

And still the deniers claim it isn’t so. As all the creatures are massacred and the air’s unfit to breath, as the cyclones devastate, the floods and heatwaves destroy and the planet bleeds they still cry foul.

What does it take?
