It Is Not A Hoax



Science is not theoretical

Not based on hypothetical

It bears up to any review

And is understood as true


The greatest minds do teach thus

The tipping point has reached us

We are killing our Mother Earth

Burning her down all she’s worth


And yet we still want to argue

That the truth is not so true

And we sit just idly by

As we watch our planet die


Although our world is very nice

We have no want to sacrifice

The future is left in doubt

For the world we can’t do without


We cannot act together as one

To stave off the charring of the sun

Hope our children have a better run

On this planet we killed for fun

    Wow!! The rhyme scheme and the meaning behind. This is awesome!

  2. These words are sadly true, making this a compelling read. I was just thinking about this yesterday, specifically thinking that, although I am a serious recycler, I also tend to use a lot of paper plates and things that create trash that lives in landfills. I miss the days of camping and campfires where all of those things were burned up and made into ash – not necessarily better for the earth, I suppose….

  3. What a wonderful message Brad, in quest to develop and be the greatest we started ruining whats greatest of all and when the fury of the universe falls , we all are insignificant. πŸ™‚

    It makes me so sad how people blatantly disrespect our planet. It’s not hard to make even small changes to help, and if every single person made those small changes, recycling, reduced use of plastics, etc…. we could preserve our planet!! I realize there’s more to it than that, it just baffles me how some people don’t think there’s anything wrong!! Nicely expressed!! The world needs more people like you. πŸ‘β€

    I like when you use your poetic gifts to bring light to our problems; another job well done, Brad!

  8. Wow, Brad. I loved the message and the rhyming scheme. Such a powerful piece of poetry

    It is mind-blowing to me that science has become so controversial. What’s next? Math? πŸ€”

    To paraphrase, ‘The only thing wrong with science are the scientists’. As people can be, some “scientists” are corrupted by ideology, greed, or status, clouding their objectivity. Science and math in and of themselves are safe and sound.
