NASA Says We're Screwed

Doesn't matter if you doubt that man caused climate change,
If you aren't concerned by now or don't believe it's strange
That the weather's out of whack - the seasons are delayed -
NASA says Antarctica is melting...  Be afraid.

In about a hundred years its glaciers will be gone
Meaning that the land the ice accumulated on,
Without all that weight, will rise and so, too, will the seas;
Causing devastation almost everyone agrees.

Process cannot be reversed, the NASA spokesman said.
Warmer water seeped between the glaciers and sea bed;
Now they're melting from the bottom as well as the top.
We are screwed.  There's nothing we can do to make it stop.

If we don't take action now - prepare as oceans rise -
Because we're too busy arguing that science lies
It won't matter anyway since it will be too late.
Mother Nature isn't proving open to debate.


  1. Mrs Smeej apologizes? What for? For saying in verse / That we're screwed? It could be worse.

    1. I don't see how this could be worse;
      This melting that we can't reverse.
      Since NASA says we
      Will be undersea,
      My backstroke's what I should rehearse.
