Death can mean many things: the death of life on Earth as we know it; death that comes from drought, floods and famines; the death of other species and ecosystems; and the death of our homes as we migrate to other lands. The clock is ticking. We must speak.


Black, oozing oil drips;

People go about their lives

Unaware of death.
