Pass The Peas

It’s not an easy thing

 Sitting back contemplating

The possibilities,,

What with rising temperatures

With rising seas,

Where would you place

Millions of displaced people?

Would it create

Multiple Middle Easts?

Is that why for many

It’s pass the peas

And straight denial?

Hell, if it were real

Would governments be issuing

Building permits at sea level,

Would they be pounding

Sand into the oceans

Creating islands and runways?

Pass the potatoes

And forget that changing

Nonsense,

Get on with living.

Dreamer

Why are you visiting

Naked in my dreams?

It’s Magic.

I don’t believe in magic.

It’s like climate change,

Whether you believe it or not

It’s happening.

At least they are not

Taxing dreams.

Give them time

Dreamer,

Give them time.
