THE BLACK ABYSS
"How dare you!" thunders Greta Thunberg, addressing the monarchs of the nations.
The roar of the teenage lioness is sadly lost in the loud din made by the powerful world leaders in their ritualistic, lip service meetings.
While the assemblage of the mighty continue their usual babble about GDPs, trade deficits, economy, sanctions und so weiter, an angry Santa Claus is sending gifts of catastrophic climate attacks on humanity to drive some sense into them.
The massive horse carriage carrying helpless humanity relentlessly to the very edge of the most dangerous precipice is occupied by us all. The blinkered horses are driven at racing speeds by the irresponsible powers that be, prodded on with whips of naked greed.
Though the climate experts and many in the younger generation like Greta wail out in agony, it is heeded not by the people who need, emergently, to hear.
The black forbidding abyss is near, very close. Once the galloping horses approach this dark hell, there is no return, no respite.
Of what use then, Oh mighty leaders of the Earth, your GDP, growth rate and economy,
IN A COSMIC BLACK HOLE.
Pl.note: Und so weiter is German meaning ‘ And so on.’
