The Trump World Is Ablaze

I was inspired to write this by the ever-growing climate crisis that we all find ourselves involved in today, the climate change deniers and the baby president of the United States.


 

Chipmunks skitter across the patio deck,

As the sun beats down in violent rays

The air feels thick with the world ablaze

Seems nature can’t cash a human check

 

Destruction lay in the wake of human greed

With the influential too self-concerned

For riches more than innocence burned

An ostrich head in sand knows no creed

 

The burden of our neglect won’t rest

Upon the frail shoulders of our aged

But the young innocent and outraged

With time increasingly more pressed

 

What is a fat wallet and ignorance worth

When the world vanished from your con?

You send sunscreens to those woebegone

In compensation for this sizzling Earth

 

Perhaps with luck, the ignorant will fall to fate,

Like foolhardy presidents with dead cat toupees,

Before our children find themselves too late,

For ambitions to exterminate the human race,

When hate and greed are leadership traits,

The world’s falling flat on its orange face.
