The World’s Ablaze

Chipmunks skitter across the patio deck,
As the sun beats down in violent rays
The air feels thick with the world ablaze
Seems nature can’t cash a human check

Destruction lay in the wake of human greed
With the influential too self-concerned
For riches more than innocence burned
An ostrich head in sand knows no creed

The burden of our neglect won’t rest
Upon the frail shoulders of our aged
But the young innocent and outraged
With time increasingly more pressed

What is a fat wallet and ignorance worth
When the world vanished from your con?
You send sunscreens to those woebegone
In compensation for this sizzling Earth

Perhaps with luck, the ignorant will fall to fate,
Like foolhardy presidents with dead cat toupees,
Before our children find themselves too late,
For ambitions to exterminate the human race,
When hate and greed are leadership traits,
The world’s falling flat on its orange face.
