A bleached coral reef turns lush life into grief,
a Centigrade’s raise ushers pestilent plagues,
and a cyclone whip-whirls with our homes warmly glowing beneath.
A glacier shrinks to a risible size,
famine feeds death, Bangladesh becomes... less,
yet STILL, the deniers deny what’s in front of their eyes.
