Global warming seems inevitable,
there’s no consensus among nations,
although this is not charitable
for all the future generations.
Desertification threatens already,
the land yearns for the blessed rain.
Melting of polar ice is steady,
sea levels rise, some islands’ pain.
Still temperatures that are below
the freezing point do not surprise.
They bring us huge amounts of snow
to trouble us then winter-wise.
The weather tends to more extremes
of storms, of heat, of bitter cold.
And when it rains it pours and teems
and makes all flood control look old.
