Critical

The world
is critically ill.

Her lungs choked
by noxious gases.

Her arteries clogged
with plastic waste.

Her liver poisoned
by toxic chemicals.

Her skin scorched
with bush-fires.

Her brain overheated
by global warming.

Her respiratory system drowning
in rising sea levels.

And her heart broken
by decades of neglect.

We need to listen
to the specialists
and take our medicine
however bitter, or expensive
before critical
becomes terminal.
