Climate Change

dying – the water too warm, the fish swarm, north they try, maybe survive
starving – the whales can’t feed, can’t breed, they mourn, no new to be born
flooding – the rivers crest, the farmers beset, houses slip away, no planting today
fire – dry tinder, strong wind, choked air, no fair
extinct – icebergs shrinking, islands sinking, flora dying, lack of coffee whining

plasticized oceans and venomous seas
lock up your carbon and fall to your knees
pray for the wisdom to turn from despair
save all the children and prove that we care
