NaPoWriMo Day 18: Catastrophe

This poem is somewhat inspired by Elizabeth Kolbert’s book, Field Notes from a Catastrophe.


Climate stability led us to thrive

In a world that was once volatile and unfriendly

Our species was thriving, striving, always wanting more

Advancing to the point where

We are wreaking havoc on the planet

The emissions of our technological empire

Keep the temperatures rising steadily

Into climate chaos

Climate instability is may cause our demise
