Day 674, Global Warming Report
A new report says Earth is warming fast.
It comes from Donald Trump’s own agencies.
It says the time for action is long past
If we don’t want to drown in rising seas.
For, melting icecaps will soon inundate
Low-lying lands on all the world’s seacoasts.
Will Florida no longer be a state
But just a swamp, while Oklahoma roasts?
The droughts and floods and wildfires will increase
And hurricanes will pack much stronger winds.
For Mother Nature will not grant surcease
As we are paid the wages for our sins.
We doubt if Donald Trump will ever read
Reports that show, on climate, he is wrong.
For Donald is a fact-resistant breed
Whose tendency toward ignorance is strong.
There’s profit in our fossil industries.
Tell California, “Rake around your trees.”
