poem challenge: Urgency

A very scary story

Once upon a scary time
The woody giants thudded to the earth,
The unique creatures died off,
The hurricanes ruined homes and habitats
where animals were once at peace with the earth,
The temperature crept up,
The sun shone brighter
as their world fell into the dark shadow
of climate change.
The sea levels rose
and new illnesses emerged.
Gas still burned,
Coal was still mined.
Even as the earth was crumbling in their hands,
Their ignorance stayed still,
Oblivious to the changing world around them.

They were living in a very scary story

and currently
it's now ours.
