How did our beloved Earth

turn to this?

Beloved –

Our world is warming.

Why aren’t we swimming?

Beloved –

Something is amiss

It is up to us to make

a change

this is the start,

the start of something strange.

The sea – Beloved – source of all life

has turned against us

to halt our folly.

Run for the hills – Beloved –

The tide is coming in.

‘Help me’, they screamed

But, they could not see – Beloved –

Above the canopy of live wires.

I don’t see a future

In a world going under

Raise your voice higher – Beloved –

The water is rising

The water is rising.
