Earth is ablaze, literally and figuratively

life as we know, is coming to an end

nature is taking her inescapable revenge

we pushed her over the edge

left her lacerated and scarred

her wounds are still fresh

her former spirit, ostensibly charred

It’s her turn now

to reset, redefine and purge our vile

Unless we take actions, alter ways and step out of our doldrums

her incandescent crimson fury will be our fateful cessation.
