         Catastrophe of the dry run

         The sea, Ice, air, human are rapture
        The powerful are brought to ruin

        Green horse making this World hot

        70% is absorbed in heat

       18 degrees Celsius balance the heat

       Mighty keeper of water in the lands

         Mighty destroyer of Islands

        Changing, charging chastising

          The atmosphere

      I see, I am part of your activities

     Burning of coal activities

       Carbon emission, 34%. 2020 activities

      350,000 in Britain suffered your hands.

      65,000 Dominican Republic feel your hands

      500,000 in southern California left home to avoid your hand
      Denmark gathered the heads cos of your hand.

     The heads accept to make peace.

      If only it will go to the heart.

      Oh mighty one, tell me how to keep peace,

       Is it more of vegetation, so I keep peace?

      Or keep away carbon dioxide

      Nitrous oxide and methane

          for peace.

      Mighty one, tell me

      How you can lie low, for peace

       I know I used more than
      I put back to you.

     Should I have my own forest?
       But I know sunspots and solar flares started before me.


This poem was writing out of inspiration on hearing and reading how this atmosphere has been badly used and the follow events caused by bad emission to the air, the changing in almost every natural events gave rise and when the heads of states gathered in Denmark to plan for the way forward. It is my contribution on how this atmosphere can be made for a better condition for us all to stay in.


(1)         This poem is a free verse, it run through without break, saying the major event that global warming has cause in the world.

(2)         That the heads of states decision in Denmark should be put into practice not mouth say.

(3)         That before man (human) started anything sunspots and solar flares started before man

(4)         We use more than we put back to nature.

(5)         That green vegetations is also a way forward.

(6)         Everyman should have his/her own or plant his/her own forest it is possible.
