ecp-poem #31

we were warned some forty years ago
much of this planet realizes we are  
dooming ourselves is taking steps  
a date has even been set for when
life-as-we-are-accustomed will cease
we will all be eco-immigrants with no
place to  go – here in Vermont I’ve  
been keeping a wary scary eye
invasives are clogging our once clear
water the season is late this year but
now we’ve seen indian pipes kingfishers
a nuthatch heron robin and yesterday
a dozen turtles sunning in the swamp
no bats they have a disease – but the
loon family is making it through no
eagle has grabbed the chicks I won’t
live to see or not see armageddon but
my great grands will who knows perhaps
we will all wake up and take preventative
protective measures against the eagles
