Age of Agony

Climate Chaos,
Hotter, longer, unlivable,
Four synchronised heat domes:
Northwestern China
{52.2C Xinjiang},
North Africa
{50C Northern Algeria},
North Atlantic Ocean
{5C marine heatwave},
Southwestern U.S.
{36C Phoenix nighttime low}, 
Fossil-fuelled HEAT!

North Pole up-in-smoke,
Horrific Emerald climate fires,
Canada/Siberia peat holocaust,
Burnt British Columbia,
Millions hundreds chokin’
Billions agonising animals,
Vale wildlife!

Fascist World,
Bulging bankers,
Two hundred-two constructions
LNG* intake/outtake ports,
Methane-leaking pipelines aplenty,
Fracking fields forever,
Booming sonic ocean oily cannons,
$7 trillion fossil fuel yearly gifts,
$3 billion daily greasy profits
{50 consecutive years},
Mother Earth’s blood-money,
Black Gold Fever!

Rallying defenders:
Mother’s noblest,
Eternal LOVE seal’d!
