Lent poem #27


Another change in the weather today. Still mild but gloomily cloudy, which got me wondering how the different weather conditions are created and why it’s getting warmer.


An oblate spheroid: they say

this is the way the world bends.

Tilted as the wind mills round and around,

Creating the weather,

whether or not it suits us.

A meteorologist’s migraine out of our control.

But we have tried to control:

A manic manipulation of stratospheric proportions,

Creating greenhouse gases.

The gas in my greenhouse was man-made too.
