We watch as they collapse before our eyes
Melting fast, beneath the skies
The ancient glaciers, rapid retreat
‘Nothing to do with us’, we bleat.
In the greenhouse of our making
The rise in temperature, is breathtaking
Deforestation continues fast
Arctic sea ice, will not last.
Coastal towns, will migrate
As waters rise, that will not wait
Out coral reefs require sunlight
With deeper waters, their future’s not bright
Marine species, may become extinct
And the world has changed, before we’ve blinked
Polar bears will lose their domain
And search fro food in this new terrain.
Glaciers weight puts pressure on rock
And as they melt, they will unlock
Tectonics plates, now free to slide
Their massive bulk, will then collide.
The friction then, will cause earthquakes
And volcanic eruption and magma flakes
And molten lava will spew high
And ash will rain down from the sky.
Cohl Warren-Howles’ bio:
Present happenings, in the nations of our time
Realist, idealist, I put my thoughts in rhyme.
In this world of changes, that moves so very fast
I try and capture things before they have passed.
I’m the author of a book, it’s called The Silent Scream
And I’m working on my second, a very different theme.
I’m a lover of images, especially black and white
But it’s the current world affairs of which I write.
