Global warming is not a conqueror to kneel before – but a challenge to rise to. A challenge we must rise to.
The picture below is that of a glacier in Alaska-these glaciers are disappearing fast!
The greatest story of exploitation
Has long been hidden under wraps
The pillage of our planet by mankind
Deserves to be discussed perhaps.
The planet Earth, our unique abode
That over millennia has sustained us
Is under threat from human greed
Its fragility suddenly in focus.
We’ve cut down trees, industrialized
And thus polluted our breathable air
Raising emissions of greenhouse gases
Causing a rent in the ozone layer.
Plagued by the sweltering heat in summer
We dismiss it as “global warming”
Forgetting that the rising temperatures
Carry with them an ominous warning.
And then, reeling under the polar vortex
Global warming is pushed into oblivion
Though the frigid temperatures are
Of global warming, a manifestation.
Remember every time you travel
To see an island or a glacier
Your children may never see them
Because they are likely to disappear.
May be all of us could lend
A helping hand for Mother Earth
And do our minute part
In preserving our home and hearth..
We sowed the seeds of global warming
Eventually the fruits we’ll bear
We have to make an effort to save
The earth and its atmosphere.
