The Planet Is On Fire (poem)

The planet is on fire,

but the Kardashians are still relevant.

The planet is burning

but here is another think piece

about why Bernie “isn’t really a socialist.”

The planet is burning

but remember how great the

(insert decade you were born)’s were?

The planet is on fire

but let’s talk about why you never get laid.

The world is burning,

but tell me again why schools

shouldn’t tell kids that racism is bad?

The world is burning

but not the worlds of COD or Fortnite.

The planet is on fire.

There is nothing else to be said

except that the world is burning.

The planet is on fire.
