Not saving but drowning

January 13, 2011


It’s flooding all over the world.

And where it’s not there’s no water to drink.

La Nina. El Nino. Names we make up.

For natural forces we can’t leave alone.

We build dams. Construct levees. Haul sandbags.

Turn off lights. Close taps. Reuse bags.

If we have them.

And all a drop in the ocean that isn’t.

For in spite of Kyoto it’s flooding.

A cynic might say. There’s profit to be made.

In building an ark.
