Haiku News: Cordray appointed


no need to dupe me

into saying politics

cares not for nature

our polluted air,

ruined waterways, sick soil,

prove their earth disdain

no politicians

have gone to bat for nature

for a long long time

instead they allow

industries, lobbyists to

write legislation

and constantly put

the economy over

the environment

except the top 2

percent get richer; can they

buy an extra earth?

because this one won't

survive our calamity

very much longer

no more walks in the

woods; the bubbling brook only

stirs a soapy froth

glaciers, once festooned

in white, grow dark drawing sun

light to heat the dirt

the ocean shall be

ruled by the tyranny of

giant jellyfish
