Mass Suicide

Climate change:
Mass suicide
Denied.
But the proof is in the pud.

Is man committing suicide
Cutting off his own air supply?
Poisoning his food resource
At the source?

The signs are there for all to see
In biochemistry.
S-l-o-w-l-y earth’s thermostat rises
Heating his earthly home
Beyond what can be borne ~
Viability for life deprived.

Do animals attempt to show man,
By killing themselves,
A quick death is preferable to slow?

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
