Burning Cathedrals Alive

Extinction bankers
Raping America’s hardwoods
British Columbia’s softwoods
Australia’s rare gums,
Wood pellets,
Europe’s hulking ovens
Stoking climate catastrophe,
Hustling Great Ending.

The Big Forestry Lie,
Enormous profits
Devastating biological deaths,
Trees are water
Water is life
Life is water!
Grownup forests
Cooperative complex
No trees
No life!

Paris Agreement/Ruse
Fossil fuel deceit
European Union loophole,
Burning Australian North American
Old-growth forests
Ponzi green scheme,
Bloated shareholders’ coffers
Roasting nature alive,
Horrendous heatwaves
Dreadful droughts
Awful agony!

Incinerating wood pellets
Unrepeatable CO2 storehouse Majesty,
Poisoning Mother Earth
Toxifying air,
Bankers salivating
$20 billion pellet annual heist,
Less planetary life
Age of Loneliness,
Stark raving mad!
