Just Stop Turmoil

We’ve reached a tipping point, one destined to accelerate our demise.

These self-obsessed in-fights will bring obliteration to our kind.


We must rebel to stop extinction, demand courageous government action.

Only a reset and full intervention will save us from ecocide oblivion.


We face a mass wipeout, a countrywide loss of bio-strength.

Brought on by public disbelief, which will lose us our majority in government.


Time is fast running out, as we face this inconvenient truth.

Just stop turmoil, or voters will remove us at the polling booth.

Thanks, John. A nice, comic write. It doesn't look as though they'll make it to COP29!

Must agree John about eco-disaster, isn't many people's biggest priority. Probably should be everyone's, but our own day to day lives get in the way.

I suspect I may have made this poem a bit too obscure. I was trying to talk about the extinction of the conservative government through climate crisis language!

Some is Suella's recent words about the existential crisis for her and the government. Events of yesterday over Rwanda being the perfect example of the mess they’ve created for themselves.

Sadly, John, I fear eco-disaster is a long way down voters’ priorities.
