Fueling Failure

By Anne Layton-Bennett

The atmosphere is increasingly
thick with recriminations,
and with anger, frustrations,
and despair at your refusal
to recognise time's up,
because the love affair with
mining and fracking
coal and gas
must end
we're all to have a future

Consider it the divorce
we had to have,
or would you rather
a warrant be issued
for crimes against humanity
and the planet
