Climate Change

Fangs grind, skin flakes
the tide rises,
false teeth, crows feet
the tide still rises,
you were there, you let it be,
the tide rises,
I am here, why should I,
the tide still rises,
oil burns, laughter lives,
the tide rises,
children grow, talking ceases,
the tide still rises,
fangs grind, skin flakes
false teeth, crows feet,
babies born, mothers die,
all beneath the same old sky
the tide floods,
You were there, you didn't care,
I was young, I didn't dare,
We are here,
We can help.
The tide remains.
