Treasure Island

James B. Earley

(5 April 1934 / Mounds, Il)

Al Gore - 'Some Bumbling Idiot, Climatic Change.....The Idiot's Myth'

Twisted logic...stark denial
'No such thing as climate change'
Narrow minded conversation
...Of the borderline deranged

Glacial reality..Ice Age mentality
...Incongruous..perhaps to wit:
'Critical still melting'
...Shallow minds just don't get

And fathom not geological history
Continents born..single mass dense
Los Alaskan neighbor
...World's future.....eons hence

Evolution reigns...exact constant
This very moment..indeed forthwith
..Yet…Al Gore 'Some bumbling idiot
Climatic change…..the idiot's myth'

...Politics..and Mankind's bigotry..
Together destined...both entwined
Evolution's vague..has no meaning
Where ignorance is..the state of mind

Author's Note:
'Don't Worry, Earth Will Survive Climate Change — We Won't.'
~Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
