Mandy Macdonald – four degrees plus

four degrees plus

first they said
it’s not happening,

then they said
it’ll never happen
and
it’s not our fault
anyway
not really
natural cycles
ice ages come around
all the time
don’t they?
.

then they said
it won’t happen in our lifetime
in our children’s lifetime
maybe
but hopefully not
and by then
we’ll have
the technology to deal with it

and anyway
we’ll adapt,
we’re an adaptable species
let’s look at
adaptation

agreed, then?
somewhere with
better wine perhaps but
same time
next year?
if there is one
