Carbon and Climate Changes

Cool coal,

Burning and burning,

New inventions started walking around,

Countries felt powerful,

Mostly humans,

Snapping one, two, three and more decades,

Driving the car of development and growth,

Earth’s health is at stake now,

Who is the reason, they researched?

Carbon and carbon were echoed,

As dioxides, monoxides, methane,

Ice Caps at poles started melting,

Uneven rains,

Scorching summers,

Rising sea levels,

Uncanny drought fears,

Searching for band aid,

To put an end to the ooze of carbon damage,

Already caused by the ones in power,

But how fair is that all are supposed to pay equal taxes to redeem the grave sins?
