that big climate-change demonstration
becoming a whole new Reformation
to save our troubled life on Earth
before it gets very much worse
gently plan smaller families
in smaller towns and cities
where non-profit corporations
safely recycle 100 percent and
to cool the overheated weather
ground all jet planes forever,
while clean wind and solar
electric installations replace
filthy coal-fired power stations,
oil refineries made irrelevant
by battery-powered transportation,
the global ocean filtered free of
entangling junk and plastic debris,
and a diet for us and our relatives:
frozen breads need no preservatives,
while organically grown vegetables
elevate our special list of edibles,
each liberating transformation
relieving our daily stress
for the peaceful autonomy
to shrink the economy
and grow the wilderness,
returning a healthy planet
to our children's generation.
