The planet is getting hotter
It’s a fact we can no longer deny
Global warming is media fodder
But I believe what they imply
This summer has been a scorcher
Temps in the 90s near every day
The unbearable heat is torture
I look at weather reports with dismay
If I live another forty years
What will earth be like?
Will it live up to our fears?
Will we go down without a fight?
Monstrous storms and terrible heat
Our path can’t be sustained
And I foresee an utter defeat
Of our idiotic human reign
