“Lessons from the Flames” by James Aitchison

1 Comment

The clean-up’s begun,

The tears have been shed,

We’ll rebuild the towns

But don’t be misled —

 

The fires have taught us

That Nature still rules,

That blazing forests

Speak louder than fools.  

 

Nothing will change if

We still dig for coal;

We’ll heat the planet

And melt the North Pole.

 

Changed climate and drought

Fuel Nature’s ire;

Ignore that lesson,

We’re playing with fire.
