The U.S.A is burning,
China is flooding,
Oceans’ temperature rising,
Mountain caps melting,
Mother Earth is ailing
And humanity is sinking.
Truth may be stranger than fiction.
The truth is that man’s greed knows no restriction,
His wants and his needs are in multiplication
And his carbon emitting activities know no cessation.
Fro sublime, we are going to the ridiculous
And our attitude towards Mother Earth is barbarous.
Instead of serendipitous, we are growing monstrous,
In our thoughts, actions and reactions treacherous.
With insatiable desire to excel,
We embarked in a race like hell
And now that the ringing of the bell
Is clearly heard by by the foolish and the intellectual,
Will we listen to the words our conscience tell?
We know we are shivering in shame,
And yet, who is to be blamed?
It is never too late to rearrange our tale
So that our faces will no longer be pale.
