Ignorance is bliss for a while

This poem was inspired by my evo science class about global warming.

These times are changing

Everyday gets warmer

Even as we ignore it

More and more animals dying

The only thing we care about

Is that ending number

Not about how the bees are dying

About how growing food is getting hard

How our water is never clean

Or all the chemicals we put in it

But that's all okay right

As long as we denie it

As long as we stay in our ignorance

It can't touch us,

We're safe

But it's a lie

We aren't safe

We're makings ourselves unsafe

Instead of fixing the gas leak

We're making it bigger

And soon we will no longer have that bliss

Because it will be to late
