Be Careful What You Grant For - Poem by Josh Brabender

I once had a wish
it was summer forever.
But later I wished that
I wished that wish never.

At first it was fun,
but now all that is over.
‘Cause I’m sweating outside,
in the middle of October.

Oh well, we’ll just swim ‘til
the heat’s not so bad.
But the sun dried it up,
where’s the water we had?

Well the water’s elsewhere,
where it’s harm starts to show.
It’s where the ice caps once were,
where it starts to rise slow.

And everyone knows
that the leaves make our air,
so what happens when they’re gone,
maybe then we’ll all care.

I guess this wish wasn’t good,
now I must make it cease.
If your smart you’d help to,
while we’re all in one piece.

You didn’t wish a long summer,
you didn’t wish a harsh heat.
Yet you granted my wish
with resources you deplete.

Now you know the wish
that makes it summer forever,
so don’t grant that wish
and we won’t lose this earth, ever.
