Heat Conditions

Written by: Tanya Harrington

I, in my coolness, Rage about the Heat.
As sweltering mirages ride the air,
I hibernate within my man-made cave.
   As the sun burns through the ozone layer,
   Our polar caps recede, warming the seas.
   UV rays scorch people, plants and the land.
   Waters shrink - people thirst, crops ruin - they starve.
Oh but I, I still have my frosty lair.
