Quilt Square #31

The constant heat waves leave me beat

The rays of sun are no fun

When it’s hot I get toasted like a bun 

Our raising climate is an issue, and if we work hard it is something we can undo

If I can change my lifestyle to better the planet so can you

When the days get warmer ice caps melt causing the earth to play the hands we dealt 

If we don’t take action our life can be split like a fraction

So as creatures of earth let’s take the next step and stop global warming or our ends will be met 

So I will take the first step and I can make that a bet.
