Poem: "Promises to Keep"

This poem came out of the October 2-3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from DW user jjhunter.  It has been sponsored by mdlbear.  You can read more about the thermohaline cycle and its potential for Epic Doom.

Promises to Keep
-- an indriso


Humanity was warned of gluttony,
Yet still they drain the Earth and foul the Sea
Until the changing climate sets things free.

Leviathan awakens from her sleep
And rises from the cold and drowsy deep
With scores to settle, promises to keep.

The thermohaline cycle goes awry.

Humanity is left both high and dry.

This resonates strongly with me. I wish more people cared about the ecosystem as a whole. Sooner or later there's going to be a backlash and it won't be pretty.

I'm happy to hear that.

Sooth. I keep writing cautionary poetry along these lines. There are just so many things that could go wrong, all the intricate processes that most people never even think about.
