Climate March

I hope we can survive without

Television.

I said I hope we can survive without

Television.

I hope we can remember that

Storytelling

Was the original channel

And drums the raised spirit before gratuitous yelling.

I hope we can survive without

Hot running water.

I said I hope we can survive without

Hot running water.

My mom just needs a fire

To bath and to cook

My mom would discipline me

With just one look.

And I hope we can remember how

to sleep without drugs.

I said I hope we can remember how

to sleep without drugs,

Because prescriptions expire

After fires and floods

And everything we thought we couldn’t live without is gone.

I said when everything we thought we couldn’t live without is gone,

I pray that we can find a better way to get along.
