It won't be
It won't be the rain that didn't stop
Nor the floods that threatened our safety.
It won't be the fires that were too close to home
Nor the heat that made the air thick.
It won’t be the many signs we ignored
While working in our air-conditioned offices,
To make the rusty machine spit soot.
It won’t be the families forced to leave their homes.
The end will come with our kids;
Deprived and uncertain.
Their future robbed and ours to dust.
