Husbandry or Pillage?

© 2018 Steve Cook

I don't know if Global Warming

Is truly what they say it is or not.

With all the twisted news

And doctored science sprayed

Into the collective consciousness

By the merchants of chaos

And architects of dismay

It's hard to tell

What's true, what's exaggerated,

And what is scare-mongering rot.

But what I do know is that

Husbandry of a planet

Is nobler, saner and more sensible

Than the brutality of pillage

And civilised people engage in it

Because they care

And are capable of reason,

Not because they are scared.
