earthday-ecopoem # 11

“A major study commissioned by the
British government concludes in its
yesterday report that rapid and
substantial spending to combat
global warming is needed to avert
a catastrophic reduction in worldwide
productivity on the scale of the Great
Depression that could devastate food
sources, cause widespread deaths and
turn hundreds of millions of people in-
to refugees.” – Los Angeles Times, Oct. 31, 2006

our span will not outlast the dinosaurs’
our great-great-grands will not enjoy s’mores
those long-lived beasts were done in by a stone
we can manage thank you all alone
