Fed and fed up with partisan trope Sliding down a slippery slope Appearing to be at the end of the rope What would it take to help people cope? While money and jobs may be dope Problems with a very wide scope Demand solutions that give hope
Clear, blue western skies Turned crimson red, burning with rage; Trees that normally sustain, Fallen victims of human disdain; Charred remains of places of shelter, Ere homes that had seen times better; The Rockies turned white with fear, Freezing to attention; The Midwest shed silent tears, Weeping all week, emerging soaking wet; Witnessing effects of climate change, Will human behavior change?
Spreading like wildfire, Sweeping everything in its way, Novel coronavirus had a big say, The eastern states were humbled, That was the first quarter. 😢
Some went Woodward, Others went wayward, Spiraling into the untoward, The Midwest stumbled, Unfolded thus the second quarter. 😢
The flames turned into wildfire and leapt westward, Aided by heat, strong wind and follies of humankind, Consuming pristine woods like there is no tomorrow, Leaving behind trail of destruction and sorrow, Not quite done yet in the third quarter. 😢😭
As we look ahead, Not yet out of the woods, People trying to pick up the pieces, Will we rise from the ashes like a phoenix, Will the situation improve in the fourth quarter? 🙏
