POEM: Boulder Climate Change Strategy

Know madder
What
The body politic wants
Wee are
A given

Fueled agin
Buy dollareds
Hot air
And cheep solutions
Trapped in a net worth
A slew of zeroes
Proffering barren fruit

Their cut
Wile the snare drum beats
US like lemmings
Lurid over
A bluff leading know where

Plunging a head
At breakneck pace
Their ultimate un-doing
In won weigh or the other
Hung by a tight rope
For good
Snappy necks ‘n dashing suits
In their bald Sisyphean crowing
As gods
Boulder for brains

And for a triumvirate of to seal their destiny, a bird metaphor (“cheep solutions, “last feather in icy cap,” and “bald Sisyphean crowing”) assures that the brains dashed against the rocks are bird brains as well as boulder for brains.  Be on notice chicken-hearted and bird-brained politicians, there is no escaping the carnage of my !  Of course, I to embolden planetary to take bolder action to relieve such politicians of any or over the fate of our Man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself --Rachel Carson quote POLITICAL BUTTONMay the people of planet earth rise up and create a destiny for that fully respects the deep harmonies of .
