'' And How '' - Poem by Bri Mar
There's no disguising,
The seas are rising,
Of that we are fully aware,
It's Mother Nature we are compromising,
But to date we don't seem to care.
As land disappears,
It will lead to tears,
As it's slowly drowned by the sea,
Soon it will confirm our worst fears,
As the water sets itself free.
As the ice caps melt,
Its power will be felt,
Throughout the planet we call Earth.
We'll be paid back by the hand we have dealt,
When there's nowhere on land we can berth.
When the surface has gone,
Despite our brawn,
There will not be enough to go round,
In-fighting will create a brand new dawn,
The effects will be very profound.
There is a solution,
We must stop our pollution,
Temperature rises are entirely our fault,
What we require is a revolution,
On greed, we must make an assault.
Being technology led,
It has to be said,
Has taken us to the state we‘re in now,
Change is required or we'll all end up dead,
Our end is nearing,
‘' And How ‘'
