Mountains

Smoke come fog, belie shorelines of smog,

Wisps, flames lick, tortured Earth is sick,

Mellow our dreams, eviscerate hills spleen,

Sanctuary of trees, Bambi’s mother’s plea,

Towers of man, totality, suicidal plan,

Stand on ice, white peaks, were nice,

Jungles of rope, must think we’re dopes,

Who’s the savoir, check owned behavior,

EPA doomed & done?, glide we do, about Sun

Climb still higher, no worries, not dire,

Cubs do play, forever and a day,

Slice and take, nothing at stake,

Smell the flower, let slip the hours,

Wisps, flames lick, tortured Earth is sick,

Wash till dry, kiss our asses goodbye.

Well, somebodies got to be the bummer.
