Transcript of "What were you thinking? (a climate change sonnet)"

  1. 1. What were you thinking? (a climate change sonnet) by Neil Dufty
  2. 2. What were you thinking? What were you thinking around fifty years ago? You had a great chance to make it turn out right. What were you doing? There is so little to show Like a boxer manoeuvring but not willing to fight. Lower greenhouse gases, there must’ve been many ways: Join together, work together – help out the Mother Earth, Don’t listen to those sceptics, those wanting the extra pays, ‘The Earth before greed’ – that would’ve had future worth! And now the seas have risen, people have lost their homes, The climate has gotten much warmer, baking all the land, The scientists’ warnings gloomy (still writing their big tomes), Wars and sickness are rampant, many need a helping hand. But all of our efforts have come too late You had your chance, you decided our fate. © Neil Dufty
