Day 800, The Green New Deal
Folks who support the Green New Deal,
Compared to folks who won’t,
Pits those who think science is real
Against the ones who don’t.
This education failure means
Exploiters may run free.
And TV folks who don’t know beans
Drive Earth toward RIP.
Reality v. ignorance,
Survival versus greed.
To give reality a chance,
Just what steps do we need?
Koch brothers: get in solar power;
You have a lot of cash.
The taste, to you, a little sour
But, you’d add to your stash.
Tea Partiers and Fox are lost.
They must be overcome.
Opinions like theirs are the cost
Of free speech, although dumb.
We do not know what Trump believes,
His brain not good with facts.
But right now, what he says deceives
His base, so they’ll relax.
Though this is an emergency;
The facts are known and clear.
Without a sense of urgency
We’re going to cook our sphere.
We’ll flood our coasts, desertify
The whole of the Southwest.
To fail now means we all will fry
If we don’t pass this test.
