A Sad Santa Claus (2) (Global Warming) - Poem by U Win Kyi

The global temperature is rising
due to excessive CO2 emission.
Then thrown into chaos is the climate,
the eco-system begins to deteriorate.
As ozone layer cannot protect the sun-ray,
Artic ice is melting away,
raising the sea level,
flooding the town under the water.
50 years from now on
the snow-capped mountains will become acrid land,
the green pasteur will become desert sand.

Under the scorching sun,
Santa's skin will be burned,
then he can no more sing Ho Ho Ho Hum Hum Hum.
Wearing a short pant,
uncovering his chest,
he will be sweating wet.
Wearing a sun-glass
his mouth and lip parched.
Holding a fan
in one hand,
and in another
a cold beer.
Wearing the sandal
as the Pole region like a burning hell.

His brand of long white beard,
riding reindeer-pulled sledge,
carrying a bag
full of presents,
in a red long coat as his dress,
roof-tops snow-capped,
the land like a snow carpet,
all these will become a thing of the past,
as the glacier melting very fast.
As Santa Claus is losing his habitat
he is very angry and mad.

He is coming to Copenhagen
to join the protesters hand in hand.
The world leaders are brian-storming about the climate
to prevent natural disasters before it is too late.
