Poem Now The Trees Have Gone


Now the trees have gone

Roads turn into rivers as people fall and die

The only growth is concrete reaching for the sky

Desert winds blowing fan the mighty flame

Forest but a memory don’t even have a name


Ocean level rising stinks of rotten fish

No longer do they live here or end up in our dish

Seagulls all live inland and gorge upon our tips

Pipelines belch out sewage exposing telltale slicks

Ever since the oil stopped flowing and gushing from the floor


Fresh water is the reason for which we go to war

Tankers held at anchor await the highest prices

Now the tides have turned and water is the crisis
