Chile’s Firestorms, Shell’s Subsidies

Twenty twenty-three,
Fossil fuel’d heatwaves
December thru February
Endlessly,
Fossil fuel’d droughts
Fossil fuel’d hellfires,
Chile SOS!

Shell boasts record
$40bn yearly profits
Unashamedly
$224bn subsidies,
Shrieking Shell
Wreaking Hell!

One hundred ninety-one
Climate firestorms,
Nine hundred
Razed homes,
Shrieking billions
Vapourised animals,
Forty Celsius
(One hundred-four Fahrenheit),
Never known
Till now!

Share windfall Shell,
Britons shivering
Chileans broiling
Nature extinguish’d,
Earthly compassion,
Zero-combustion World,
Twenty-thirty!
