or haven’t you found

any motives behind what’s divisive?

It’s true many States are burning

while D.eniers of C.limate keep churning

their lying, bright bubbles

to quiet the rabble

that witness charred forests’ forewarnings

 

Limerick 41 

 

#41 

The age-old problem at hand—

Not a Second Coming just land

in the Ha!-Gonna-Grab!

hollow space of emptied last sands….
