Temperatures Rise

Long before man this planet

throbbed with the echoes of life

Their were massive sheet of ice

this wondering glacial paradise


Altitude determines the air-pressure

a barometer’s instrumental measure

the rush of the flowing freezing rain

welcome to this frozen barren land


Ocean’s currents in the jet streams

actively tempering the climate extremes

Precipitation no this was preparations

for civilization’s potential for devastation


Industrialization a wonder and surprise

greenhouse gases warming morning sky’s

The planet’s thermal Fahrenheit will erupt

seas rising, ozone thinning, El Nino will disrupt


Who investigates! economical cost is the debate

legislation sits and waits! man’s future is left to fate

Lightening striking across continental longitudes

while the moon trigger global atmospheric attitudes


gusty! gale force winds, typhoons inpatient once again

death! destruction! it’s insane, we now give them names

Still man squabbles in vain, the reasons remain strange

There will be pain to go with that thermometer change

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
