filibusters, delay tactics
personal procrastinations
seen on all levels
let us wake up to reality
scientists are now sharing data
and voicing their fears
life on Earth is at risk
and they can count it by years
forests, whole ecosystems
coral reefs, melting ice
starvation, air pollution
heat domes
we can’t postpone
the urgency of righting global wellness
we have the knowledge and systems
and we are all invited to participate
the choices we make determine our future
let there be no mistake
let us see what we can create
massive innovation
celebrating co-creation
no time like now with this realization
we are in this together
and our destiny is to win
