The Heavens Opened

The heavens opened

And tears fell in a deluge

Drowning out the sun.

 

Show me we deserve its warmth,

The joy we get from its light.

 

There is so much wrong

And none of it is our fault,

Or so we believe.

 

Climate change, its natural;

Pollution, blame the Chinese.

 

Procrastination,

Our answer for everything,

How terribly sad.

 

“It can wait ‘til tomorrow”;

Is our national motto.

 

Yes, heaven opened,

Its tears fell as acid rain,

But it’s not our fault.

 

Leave it all for the children,

We’ll be gone soon anyway.
