Climate Change (A poem for the ‘alleged’ environmentalists)

the planet is dying

no health fixes for it

at the co-ops or online

it’s a prognosis

that can’t be

reversed

yes we will die with it

as it should be

for now however

we have a chance

to save some plants

and insects and birds

and beasts

have a quality of life

before the bitter end

the plants and bugs

and beasts are necessary

who would want to live

without them?

why can’t we care about

what we can do now?

even the goddamn activists

are in on it  

obsessing on Global Warming

while hundreds of species

disappear forever

and they and we don’t

seem to give a living shit

except for our health

our health

our bloody fucking health

it is shameful that we will

let die and disappear

the very things that make

life worth living

all for a few more centuries(?)

to still do nothing more

than curse Mother Nature

for betraying us so?

so goodbye birds and beasts

hit the road you leatherbacks

we must save ourselves

we will not give up

buying one single product

for the freeness

of a butterfly’s beauty

nor for the sweetness of a bird’s song

so die already  just fucking die

(Even the Audubon Society has now declared Global Warming the ‘major threat’ to birdlife.  What ‘lib-er-al’ Bullshit!  INDUSTRIAL WIND is a major threat to birdlife and to the habitat of other critters–animals don’t like noise.  But to hang on and ‘live forever’, we will forsake all that can be done now for the ‘scam’ that we can avoid the ‘inevitability’ of Global Warming.  People really SUCK.  We deserve our fate.  Hope some critters survive after we are all dead and rotting in Hell.–I’m Peter Buknatski and I approve this message.  

Also, for you lib-er-al Dems, I have begun making phone calls to the U.S. Justice Dept. and the FBI to see what’s involved in getting a ‘citizen’s complaint’ filed and an ‘investigation’ going on Bill Sorrell and his corruption and ‘enabling’ of the heroin/human trafficking’ pipeline through Vermont.  Also, I will pass his story onto several major newspapers and magazines.  It will make for a good story at least–THEN maybe, as Dylan once put it, “somebody ought to investigate soon.”)

  1. I’ve been working for the non-human creatures of this state and this earth as best I can all my life.  I’ve tried to pinpont just when it was that “environmental groups” (with some exceptions) stopped caring about these creatures and their ecosystems and instead focused on supporting green-camouflaged players who destroy intact ecosystems for what they think will SAVE US! but will instead degrade and destroy the innocents that we share earth with.  

    I’VE MOVED BEYOND GREEN!  

    Hurray~beyond green, that fig leaf of self-interested nonsense that boasts how special we are while sacrificing nothing.  You’ve hit on some essential points of our human nature here.

    We certainly will “just fucking die” and it will likely be much sooner than the self-identifying saviors who call themselves environmentalists can fathom.  It will be decades, not centuries, as methane surpasses CO2 in the emissions race.  (350.org is already out of date, as March levels are consistently over 400).  I’ve made my peace with our impending doom – good riddance to man.  The saddest part of this story of self-extinction is that no one will remain to babysit the nukes, hence denying remaining species their rightful unmolested turn here.  

    Until we all say adieu, I will continue to try to protect what I love.  But I now model my life on the birds, who sing with abandon, soar and swoop and nest and launch young without a thought to death that could come at any moment.  I seek out beauty everywhere, and celebrate with gratitude what remains.  

  2. to disagree. And, my friend dear sir I have news — more birds fly into building w/plate glass windows and other structures all over the world — what to do! Stop building structures which enter or exceed the height of bird-flight zones??? It’s a Koch-carbon industry coterie & pretext my friend. What about the green butterfly that reportedly flew over a nuclear power plant and got a free tan? If GMP is purchasing wind power from other states someone somewhere has a windmill in a town near them. So if the crybabies don’t wish to contribute to the misery of themselves or their fellow man kindly shutup, stock up on ensconced candles as we did in ancient times, live like the Amish and get off the grid entirely. Yes I already know some have so they can bith-bitch-bitch about we the designer-shoe wearers to their hearts content.

    Soo … where are the statehouse rallies, calls to bird-friendly our structures, stop building them along with glossy poster-childed dead birds with their fearless leader and Koch-sponsored nutjob villifying them all while providing us all with the exact dimensions of said leaders “carbon footprint”. It’s just another religion and actually reminiscent of my church days.

    I’m not actually a true believer but if the denyers are wrong we’re fucked and so are the fishies, birdies, bears,  and the other fuzzy-wuzzies we love so much. Plus, I believe the winders are seeking wind-friendly locales so as not to freak out the mountain-worshipers which also serves to  support indirectly Koch & Co. plan to revive the nuclear industry as well as the coal & other carbon belchers destroying life for our cute and lovely furry, feathery and fishy friends. Perhaps now that Entergy Louisiana is supposedly closing VY the shad population will return I’d rather see them move than die off. Hell I’ve moved so many times it’s down to a science.

    Or the calls for an end to selfrighteous Church of the Small Carbon Footprint naysayers, those finger-shaking reprimanders leadership of whom is likely   However this is one thing I can say fosheezy about:

    When I drove for a living during the overnight hours, I got behind a tractor trailer with no license plate(s), just a solid green license plate which I reported to VSP. They just don’t give a fuck!. Heads-up Human-Drug Trafficing Squad. I saw sketchy looking windowless vans and the like all the time.

    VT is the alabame backwater of northern NE complete with smoke-free backroom-dealing privacy-violating embezzlement capital of the US. LPRs are illegal in NH and they have no plans to revive the Nazi Patriot Act either.

  3. …or into the cenote.  Paul Burns (as a figurehead of this tribe) would have us sacrifice non-human species to absolve us of our sins while earning brownie points for a higher seat on the Titanic.  “I’m greener than you are, sayeth Lord Burns; man has tools and so is compelled to use them).”

    The ancient desert tortoise is being thrown into the cenote in CA and NV to make way for concentrating solar factories, where migrating birds mistake the mirrors for lakes and as they approach are incinerated (pffft!) by the heat.  These are called “streamers” in the parlance and there are lots of them.  Eastern migratory flyways in NC may soon sprout wind choppers for those species fated as collateral damage while on their ancient pathways.  Who will collect these brownie points?

    (Btw, I’ve shared your poem on an extinction awareness support group Petey, and it was well received).
