California’s Fossil-Fuelled Bomb Cyclones

Twenty twenty-two,
Carbon ignition
Fossil fuel, wood pellet, palm oil
Record burning,
Oceans stockpiling HEAT!

Each ocean second,
Twelve point five
Hiroshima atom bombs,
Combustion HOTNESS
(Three-fold enlarged
Since Twenty-eighteen!),
Oceans birth climate,
Fossil-fuelled
Irate superstorms abound!

Xmas Twenty twenty-two,
North Pacific
Climate bomb cyclones
Brewing aplenty,
Doomy California skies!

Next twenty-one days
Nine-nightmare
Atmospheric River
Barrages,
Unparalleled,
One hundred trillion
Skywater litres
Torrentially downpour’d!

Surf’s nine-metre up,
One hundred ninety
Ferocious gale
Kilometres per hour,
Trunk snapping
Uproot toppling
Elder trees
Galore,
Petrifying!

Washed away roads
Rivers bursting banks,
Endless
Power outages
Mudslides
Landslides
Sierra avalanches,
San Franciscan raw
Streaming sewage Bay,
Forestry & Big Oil’s
Cataclysmic climate bombings,
“Price paid”!

Righteous path forward,
Switching swiftly
From
Human GDP economy
To
Mother Earth Living economy,
Counting
Contentment Index
Zero-combustion World,
Twenty thirty!

Wilderness sacrosanct,
Native forests
Grasslands
Wetlands
Peatlands
Sea grass meadows
Mangroves
Ocean floor
All animals therein,
Indispensable climate solvers,
Climate Gen defenders
Do or die!
