broken sky blues

storm brewing up strong
after a drought so long
the parched cracked Earth
seems past hope of rebirth
spring steps two weeks back
winter’s sharper than a tack
tornadoes and hurricanoes
wrack the land and sea
breaking with the news
of what should be plain to see
they got the broken sky blues

the people choke the streets
to march their message
to the President
but he’s wearing golf cleats
with the oil baronage
on a day so pleasant

glaciers quicksilver machine
retreat exposing the Pleistocene
is unnoticed in the information age
by the readers without a page
who are more concerned with wifi flaws
than summers when the north pole thaws
tornadoes and hurricanoes
wrack the land and sea
breaking with the news
of what should be plain to see
they got the broken sky blues
