Dire Fire

How can I sleep
When polar bears are dying?
Climate change has us frying?
And so many people denying?
We could be saving a whole planet.
Instead we say “forget it, goddammit”
They think it’s more important to slam it,
Drain every resource cooked over too many years.
All I have for this situation is tears,
“Let’s forget it and have a couple beers,”
They say. I can’t watch this destruction
While big companies focus on construction,
And all we care about is production,
And filling up pockets so deep.
For the loss of snow leopards we weep.
I ask again, “how can I sleep?”
