Hurricane Harvey

Of course there is no climate change,

The ignorant will say.

High heat and rain are never strange;

It’s all in nature’s play.


Some others say it’s not our fault

That arctic ice will melt.

Mankind cannot make nature halt

Despite big changes felt.


For me, it seems that ignorance

Is pandering to greed,

And Trump may beg the difference,

But change is now the seed.


And when it warms to melt the ice

And seas begin to rise,

And Texas floods and pays the price,

“Well, that’s a big surprise.”


When some exclaim with deep concern,

This storm is tragic news,

Then I will add we still can learn

We are what we abuse.
