Let’s not look through life’s window,
but step through to the other side.
Let’s not wonder at our passing,
but witness how humans will one day die.
We’ll see coastal cities flooding
and spend billions to keep them dry.
We see crops failing
and watch starving people die.
Drought, fires, tornados run amuck,
it’s sanity disappearing like glacial ice.
Denials, lies, and greed blaming nature,
it’s humans causing other humans to die.
