Holding Back Tears

I will not let my tears flow In the face of all adversity Pleasure I will gladly forego if it means the end of perfidy. We the people have little power Like putty, we're manipulated News is grim the mood is sour Miasma of greed calculated. Climate change, long denied Escalates with alarming speed Polar ice melting cannot deride Obvious to all, please intercede. Amazon needing conservation Forest depletion is a crime Deforestation and ruination It's on the clock let's all call time. Then Covid reared its ugly head It took the world by storm Populations sadly misled Endless tears mourning the dead. We cannot help our weeping grief Pulling together we'll make this right Challenges to face are beyond belief Time to be brave as we all unite.
