A Crying Crumbly World


A Crying Crumbly World

Deadly droughts drained
And bubbled because of
A brutal blaze of heatwaves

Let loose were heatwaves
That made the world fierier
Than at any time in noted history

Seas acidifying, species on the brink
Of death, the earth barked a bitter welcome
To an unwelcoming upheaval of heat and hell
