So now we
see the fire and feel the rain,
our people drown and children burn,
these climate warnings seem in vain,
what it takes for men to learn.
us there’s no need to take a stand,
simply Mother Nature and her ways,
the rising tides and barren land,
that we are near the end of days.
prophecy was written long ago,
would rain on Earth and all will die,
is not some sacred Holy glow –
sunlight through our thin polluted sky.
leaders of the world refuse to heed,
to ponder over future’s fate,
ever-growing problem – like their greed,
and watch the problems escalate.
kill our planet long before its time,
some action now – that much is plain,
leave your children victims of this crime,
– and stop the fire and the rain.
