Do they think that their money
can somehow save them from the weather?
Do they think the scientists are lying?
Do they think they can move to Mars?
Do they think? Do they care?
It’s very hard for me to see
how someone can be smart enough
to gather so much wealth and power,
and still not understand
the outcomes of their actions.
When the world heats over,
when the storms increase
with the fires, floods and droughts,
when the ice melts and the waters rise,
will they be surprised?
Will they try to shift the blame?
Will they claim they didn’t know?
Maybe they will feel ashamed,
apologise and make amends, or
deny, deny until they die.
