Ocean temperatures rising at an alarming rate.

Ice caps melting and crashing into the sea.

Earthquakes, tsunamis and wild fires devastating beyond belief.

Politicians lying through their teeth.

Mother Nature is going to kick our sorry asses to the curb.

No hope for the human race.

Go out and choke on the death spewing fumes  of your convenient automobiles.

Go out and feast on the chemicals in everything that you eat.

Go out and burn in the record heat.

What you will see beyond your mind altering technology is the reality. 

We are slicing our own throats.

    It may well be time to colonize Mars ... start trashing a new planet! Well done, Johnny.


      I think the timing will be right, or never right.

      Your impressive write hits all the nails as this system bangs them further into our coffins - -- a haunt of a read James.

        Thank you, our politicians wield mighty hammers that they are inept to use, it's terrifying.

      • FredPeyer

        James, when you're right, you're right!
        Not only are we slicing our own throats, but we are slicing those of our kids and grand-kids as well!
        Very good and direct writing, no talking about the bush, no fancy metaphors - just one big strong hit!

          I felt this one had to be blunt as my most recent poems have been. Thanks for your insightful comment.

          James Michael, go on and tell us how you really feel! Just teasing. This punches the gut and sucks the air out of a room. Anger properly executed in your powerful words.

            Thank you, I feel deeply about the environment, as my wife does. Unfortunately our president does not.
