Unwanted Guest

A Poem by Dave Brown



He came to visit at first, then stayed

Although his image was mostly a joke

At first it was a slow Volkswagen he drove

But even that junker was pumpin out smoke


His name was Climate Change, and he

Eventually became tired of the pace

So, he dumped the VW for a Maseratti

That he could begin to race


His hot pipes are sending their charms

Spitting out pollution and fire

The atmosphere being blacked by smoke

From his spinning, strip laying tires


He smiles as huge forest’s shrink

From chainsaws and endless burning

Watching the temperature rise beyond

Has become his greatest yearning


He laughs at stupid mankind

Intent on his own destruction

And as he continues to speed

He’ll suffer no atmospheric interruption

It's funny how money makes the world go around until greed finally destroys it. When oil was being dumped into the gulf of Mexico a few years back in that massive spill a foreign company was given the power to keep locals from going to the shorelines to document their cleanup. Imagine that BP a foreign entity had more power on US land then an actually American citizen. But these corporate politicians don't want you to remember or talk about that because of how true it is. You see because if you got all the money in the world you got all the freedom in this country to do whatever you want. If you don't then you have half that freedom if you're lucky. Thank you Dave for always speaking truth to power.

Well, like it or not, it's likely to not last much longer
You've blown the roof off the genre of making political statements about climate change. This poem blows the rings off Saturn. When I reached the start of V2, my jaw literally DROPPED down to the table top with a BANG! I mean, what an amazing metaphor, the VW coughing smoke, not going fast enuf, being traded in for speed! This is a SCATHING parody of our planet's demise. May I bow down & kiss your feet? (((HUGS)))

Never heard of it. I've gone way beyond the news lately. Have no idea what's happening anywhere!
