We’ve been warned
The seas are rising
And as we refuse to see
The writing on the wall
We risk ever greater loss
We build our lives in
Precarious places…
Prone to disasters
Natural or not…
One day it will be
Too late…will we
Get a clue and
Leave behind a
Precarious existence
Or evacuate on the run?
Human nature says
It’s the latter

    Scary thought, but well said

      Scary, but real, Suzanne. Just think about all the people living on the eastern coast, who have to flee increasingly frequent major storms. They live in dangerous places, for reasons that don’t stand up if self-preservation is taken into consideration. And they’re in denial to climate change. Scratching my head. :-/
