Not even two score year
A point of no return is very near
But the truth, if you hear
If that act NOW is already here
We have to change the global energy system complete
Stop this level of consuming and nature mistreat
Realize we have only one planet, now downbeat
We’ve broken the system so the planet will overheat
For decades I’ve been but a bore
Talking a climate, toxicology, climate and more
Saying it’s one system from shore to shore
I’m glad the young are finally starting to ROAR
We don’t really have the race psyche© REDCAT
Accepting the race is still so childlike
Instead of chasing the next social like
We should all participate in the next climate strike
In the poem I cite one commonly misunderstood time-span in witch to ACT!
Read,“What Does ’12 Years to Act on Climate Change’ (Now 11 Years) Really Mean?” and “Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months” for a better understanding.
And wonders if not more of us adults should join Greta Thunberg och #FridaysForFuture for the next big climate strike.
