Cheap Flights & Baby Births
by Cernunnos Poetry
Age Group: Adult
Cheap Flights & Baby Births
Who cares as the ice caps melt,
And pollinators disappear?
We can't control the hand we're dealt
Nor the promise of a 'buck-a-beer'
Who cares that the sea is rising
Or that the ocean's full of plastic?
Here we keep things non-surprising
In our bland suburbs fantastic
Who cares when the farm crops fail
And Earth's diversity is lost?
We'll still shop for brands on sale
From big-box stores that buy at cost
Who cares when tall forests die
Or that northern peat's on fire?
In sheltered burbs we don't ask 'why'
So long as souls are still for hire
Who cares about this climate change
And the drastic loss of Life on Earth?
In the suburbs still we find it strange
To not revere cheap flights & baby birth
