The New Vulcan

I imagined I saw Vulcan the God of Fire in human shape; I was walking in a forest drenched in rain; He stood with arms extended crying; The planet is heating; Not from volcanic explosions but from greenhouse gasses; He is not the God of Volcanoes anymore; And I rejoiced that my faith will convert him;

This heating world is the place for my beliefs; And I have chosen to worship a new Vulcan; And I instantly desired to demonstrate global warming to him; And tell him I am willing to bear scoffers and sneerers; And suffer beastly trolling for his sake; And in my rejoicing my heart was beating very quickly;

I believe this new happiness will change me into someone else; Though not yet pleasant, for I am learning joy; Walking with the new Vulcan in the rain; Feeling nervously happy and growing humble; And I said to Vulcan that I did not deserve this kind of happiness; And Vulcan told me that neither did he;
