on growing their economy,
when such people deny
the weatherman's concern
about global "warming" (dying)
and climate "change" (collapse),
i.e. the end of the World,
if they sneer, accuse and
challenge how and why,
give all of them
this brief reply:
dominated by billions
of ravenous, scheming
and violent humans
the Earth is one
tortured biosphere
land, sea and sky
so tainted with
growing tons of
their pollution
everyone will die --
to their last breath
poet and planet
ignored to death.
