Not Another Read-through (Febraury 20, 2020)

It’s the month of fevers
People are looking for dreams
To hitch their wagons to.

In breaking
With the past
That burns arounds them
Filling their souls
With toxic exhaust.

To do otherwise
Is suicidal
Spiritually and physically.

Can’t stop the tears
Which flow down
At the chances
We’ve squandered.

Have seen the future
That awaits us
Horror filled nightmares
No one escapes.

Why adults are
Silencing children
With their voice of truth
For the choices needed?

Hiding behind
Petro-dollars bought
And paid for
Politicians and legal system.

As we watch
The nightly news
Countries burn away
Before our eyes.

Can’t stop
It’s our extinction
We’re driviing to.

Like frogs
In a pot
Of boiling water.
