Global warming stretched its arms To hug all the joy and bliss of the world It transforms achievement of years Into bereavement of eternity. All, keeping hand over hand Waiting for the doomsday to descend And turn this mundane universe extinct In the blink of an eye.

Incarnation of global warming Seems to be inevitable As it has already started laying its foundation. It has developed into embryo From the drop of sooty sperm injected By the ruthless chimney of carbon industries And by the smoke of population explosion.
Climate has turned to furnace Frost to ice River to ocean Man to monster Benevolence to gangster Love to rape Medicine to drug Water to blood Flood to drought And drought to flood Foul to fair, fair to foul.
Are these not good enough To give a sign of caution? Are these not the symptom of an ill-omen? If not, go ahead with your endeavours And best of luck for handful days That dwell on your fingertips.
