Voldemort, by contrast, was vanquished easily

Changed climate is not a surprise
With drilling for gas on the rise
Where can life forms hide
From carbon dioxide
And methane let loose in the skies?

Neo-druids auger gas wells
And add fluids with sulfurous smells! 
Are poisons they've tapped
With their magic wands trapped
Evermore by sorcerous spells? 

Votes and news seem not relevant
The unrelenting elephant
In all our best rooms
Is fossil fuel's fumes
And toxins we can't circumvent

    nicely done Duke,,,,,toxins in the air,,, drive me crazy. As always thank you for reading I call her name,,,, I haven't seen my X in 5 yrs. he was a cop/under cover. So every now and then he'd have those dreams.

    I was expecting Harry Potter and instead I was treated to the magic of your words. Well done and important subject for us all to ponder.
