Weather Report

[image from google]

Icebergs are melting,
crumbling into the sea like
icecubes melting
in a simmering
pot of soup.

Polar bears
are swimming for
their supper
as the tundra steams.

Shores are flooding
as the rivers
rise.

Forest fires burn
whole towns
and cannot
be stopped.

Before summer
even begins,
crops dry up
where farms
have slowly turned
into deserts.

The planet is melting,
it's burning up,
and nothing changes.
