Treasure Island

Perhaps..... ['global warming' and Mankind; some thoughts]


Al Gore was almost once our head of state.
Now in movie he says it’s near too late......
to keep storms, drought, and oceans from swarming....
over us. He calls it “global warming”.

In a way it’s sad that it may be true.
[Drastic changes could Man’s proposed future undo,
but I think convenience forms Man’s path.
Consumption may bring to Mankind great wrath.]

Perhaps as in Bible story of Flood
not all Mankind will be buried in “mud”.
Perhaps survival instinct will kick in,
and some segment of Mankind will still “win”.....
....to live on with grandkids on their knees,
if “God” or “Mother Nature” it does please.
I don’t know if I care more or care less...
than you, the reader, care about this mess.

I really don’t think Men should live so long
or guzzle gas as they listen to song.
Perhaps it’s now our species’ turn to end....
and end the need, from ourselves, to defend.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

guzzling gas means Mankind uses lots of petroleum fuels to drive vehicles, sometimes just for 'fun' while listening to music.
i hope you've enjoyed this little romp through my mind as it was 6 years ago.........and still is.

    very nice. As long as mankind exist, there are wars. But there are still ways.
