Mother Goose in the End Times

Mother Goose in the End Times

It’s raining
It’s storming
The locust clouds are swarming
The oceans are asphyxiating
Why?
From global warming
Caused by your cannibal
Capitán Capital
Cutting all the forests down
Who, hunting for profits,
Sets off pandemics,
Spreads deserts, and drought
Despite the melting polar ice
The pine tree
Down the street from me
Stands there all night
Offering its lime green cones
To the lavender light
