Green Awake

After multiple
scientific warnings
that ever growing
smokestack, gaspipe
and jet exhaust warming
is overheating the planet
to cataclysmic weather,
evidence cynically dismissed
as leftist political blather
by the soon-to-be-wealthy few,
it now comes down to you
to turn off your own
jet powered ambition,
your coal-fired electricity,
your gas-burning vehicle,
and instead,
grow fresh organic food
from your garden and orchard
the physical and mental health
to launch your green career
with wind mill and solar panel
create eco-friendly wealth --
while every blazing summer
of raging storm and flood
is overwhelming and fatal
to the growing millions
of endangered humans
like yourself.
