Global Warming Warning 2

 
The east coast gets those devastating hurricanes
While the west coast goes into long drawn-out drought
I just saw a video of Canadians getting tornadoes
While climate change deniers are still spreading doubt

A U.S. Senator escapes the freezing temperature
While people suffered and died in the terrible cold
Whether itís Fahrenheit or Celsius for the wealthiest
The weather is always fine in their palaces of gold

Now an unbearable heat is sweeping across the land
Diligent and responsible water conservation is a must
Why wonít dumbasses listen to experts and scientists
But they swallowed a lie and donít know how to trust

Dig and drill for coal and oil? Sell your soul for spoils
Raping Mother Nature seems to fill some deep pockets
Take all that you desire, as forests and gulfs are on fire
And the richest? ďIím outta here in my private rocketĒ

We are only here but for a mere sec in the spec of all time
And need to heed the warnings if we donít change our ways
Or else future societies will cry for us for not seeing the signs
Because she might take it back, she will take it back, some day
