In the beginning, water the origin of life
Life’s first steps onto dry land,
On water it still is dependant, for some
To propagate their future, but for all,
(Bar a minuscule few in their adult stage,
Who do not drink or partake of food),
To sustain their life their wellbeing.
From their start in life to the end
Over many millennia life has evolved,
But water still trends, all life is
Still dependant, but be aware! Water
Now threatened, from the oceans to the
Freshest inland streams, over heating.
Casting strife, and for some premature
death, pollution a contributing factor,
By way of high levels of CO2, acid rain,
To climate warming, could it be the end
Nature, confused, fickle now the seasons.
Last summer, remember it was Tuesday
Extinctions rife, in both flora and fauna
Leaders of countries look out blinded,
Or in denial, the truth before their eyes.
“Lies”, they scream, “Conspiracies!
To make life tough for businesses, the rich”.
Why can they not see the poverty climate
Change is creating. Stop pollution now,
Why can they not see it coming, THE END
