In the back of everyone mind is the next pandemic.
The one of global warming that will certainly be endemic.
It will be pandemonium one that could be halted.
If we just reach out and lobby our leaders that are exalted.
They have a greater power in decision making.
Though in day to day life there are choices we could be taking.
We have to think of whats at stake.
We have to rewrite our reckless mistakes.
The heat waves are reaching towards the northern ice caps.
If next year they do these glaciers will collapse.
The earth will flood landslides and people drowning in mud.
Boiling temperatures and water being scarce.
Yet it seems there is no solidarity and no one cares.
The salt water is not of which we can drink.
Masses of land into the ocean will sink.
People are already climate refugees.
I beg of you be more conscious please.
Join in solidarity this is the greatest challenge our civilizations have to face.
Yet we continue to burn fossil fuels whilst people by harsh climates are displaced.
Is this writing a complete waste.
Will you heed what I have said without a bitter taste.
If you are already conscious of this phenomenon.
Then all hope is not gone.
We have to tackle this problem as one.
This is a global challenge that we must conquer soon.
So, I ask of you in your day for a salon make some room.
Speak, think, listen be active.
To politicians with shortsightedness be reactive.
It is time we put the planet and its people above the needs of an economy that rewards the rich.
Because this planet is the only one of which we have to live upon.
All hope is not yet gone.
So lift your pen and your voice to all that's wrong.
Be active in change for this earth is no longer strong.
Before we hear the final gong.
And the trumpets of Armageddon play their final song.
